 Those cute double arrows that have become the trend for signifying forward
 or backward progress are actually quotation marks, and screen readers will
 pick them up as such. I would recommend stripping them completely from the
 core of WordPress and allow users to continue to be able to change those
 texts if they choose, rather than being forced to remove something that
 isn't right from the start.
