[bksvol-discuss] Re: Quotes

And even for sighted people they're annoying. We do have the option of reading 
them before or after reading the main text, but still, it's annoying--and 
figuring out where to put them when validating is something of a challenge.

Jim, I suggest,  if you don't mind, deleting them from the middle of the 
sentence and placing them someplace on the page where they don't interrupt an 
idea--between paragraphs or, better, sections, or at the end of the page if a 
paragraph ends before the end of the page, or at the top of the page if a new 
paragraph starts there.
