On page 85 the user guide doubles down on their recommendation to avoid 
quotation marks, but also seem to recommend straight quotes, at least in 
the context of placeholders:

| Placeholders are often surrounded by single or double quotes in the
| English source text. Quotes should be avoided in the Norwegian Bokmål

| straight double quotes.
