Ideas

Use <q> tag for inline quotes (and generally encourage more semantic code)

    For those that say "quotation marks do not necessarily mean a quotation (in English)", just think about what you are saying. They are CALLED 'quotation marks', aren't they? Try looking up 'quotation marks' in one of the Oxford dictionaries.

    Having said that, it doesn't mean they cannot be adopted for other uses.

    However, the <q> tag is intended for short quotations and it makes sense to use it. One can use quotation marks (single or double) for whatever other use one wants. It's quite possible that one wants true (short quotations) to be, for example, rendered in italics in a different colour. That shouldn't affect other uses of quotation marks.

    Agreed that semantic code is the way to go, but not implementation of the <q> element.

    Agreed totally with david_wc3.
    Code is changing so much.
