Hi, thank you for this major update.

Regarding quotation marks, it's really up to target language to use one
of several styles of quotation marks and quotation formatting. Original
English text is only a reference, not something to follow.

User guide you mentioned, mostly tells to omit quotation marks (p. 58),
and use straight double quotes if they are necessary.

The fact that '«' and '»' are missing from default keyboard layout is
unfortunate but can't alone be a reason not to use them, if traditional
typographical rules tell so.

What about default Wine font problems with them? I see no such thing
when testing in clean prefix, but it could certainly depend on dpi/font
size (Wine's Tahoma is simplistic) and actual font you're using.
