Citoid should convert typographer's quote marks to straight quote marks
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Citoid copies typographer's (i.e. curly) quote marks from the source into the resulting citation. See the diff at, which is unmodified Citoid output, for an example.

Per [[MOS:QUOTEMARKS]], typographer's quotes are not recommended for Wikipedia. Citoid could convert these marks (and, for extra credit, low-high („ “) and guillemet (« ») quotation marks) to straight single or double quotation marks.
