    That is not many fonts. That is a handful of fonts made for or by a single software company.

    Adam has access to the MyFonts database, so perhaps he can tell us what percentage of the
    tens of thousands of commercial fonts in that collection support U+201B. My guess is that
    it is less than 1%.
