Requirements for Latin Text Layout and Pagination
19.1 Language-specific spacing rules

There are further languages other than French with extended Latin
alphabets that use different characters as quotation marks than
English. In contrast to the English quotation marks (U+201c (8220),
U+201d (8221)), German and Hungarian use low open quotation marks
(U+201E (8222)). The Hungarian close quotation mark is identical to
that of English (U+201D (8221)), while in German the close quotation
mark is identical to the English open quotation mark (U+201C (8220)).
It should be clearly indicated that the table is just an example, and
there are further quotation marks in other languages, or even extend
the table with further examples.
