I second that.
WordPress inserts legal quotes for english text only. In non-english texts
WordPress’ »smart quotes« are anything but smart. They’re just plain wrong.
Additionally WordPress has german, swiss and french »quotes« hard coded
as *arrows*. This is extremly annoying, because it requires anyone who
cares about typography to buffer and clean up the complete output.
Using » and « as arrows violates aestethic, orthographic and unicode rules.
Typography should never be hard coded in a software that is used in
different languages. Get it out of the core or add at least an option to
switch it completely off.
