While this is all true, I believe the OP *meant* to talk about &8220;
and &8221; respectively:
'LEFT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK'
'RIGHT DOUBLE QUOTATION MARK'
which, in some badly-designed font, may render as plain quotation marks
(and the OP indicated that he thinks those were plain quotation marks).
See http://www.unicode.org/charts/PDF/U2000.pdf for fonts that better
show the difference; the characters are U+201C and U+201D, respectively.
P.S. This thread shows why it is better to literally copy-and-paste
into Usenet articles, instead of typing all program text in again.
