For German, it's quite simple: The opening quotes must visibly start
at the base line and go into the lower left direction; the closing
quotes must visibly start somewhere at the uppercase glyph height and
go into the upper right direction.

             xx +---+

An exception to this might be fonts which imitate handwriting; in this
case the closing quotes are written exactly in the opposite direction.
