The search for proper quotation marks

Ah, the quotation marks. Have you noticed how the default quotation marks is different (and a lot less attractive) from the actual quotation marks?

I've been trying to get Inkscape to show the actual quotation marks for some time now.

The solution I tried was to use a word processor, replace the default the default quotation marks with special characters. In this case, actual quotation marks. Not all fonts offer special characters, we need to check the font set first. And paste everything back into Inkscape.

But I just learned that there's an easier way of doing this, simply by pressing Alt and a few numpad keys.

Actual quotation marks look way much better the default one, don't you think?
