    It is not personal taste that is the problem, but the quotation marks
    that are just plain wrong. Have you ever looked at the images that
    have been posted?

    My intension was to prevent a flame war, therefore, I sought for
    constructive comments. Your destructive answer, however, does not
    seem to be written with an intension to help. Neglecting some
    language's writing system's needs is not an intension of Unicode, in
    fact, it's just the opposite but that's what you seem to do here.
