Well, I guess then it's not a coincidence that the same person that formatted the "Mapp and Lucia Omnibus" also did the "The Chronicles of Barsetshire" Omnibus. I downloaded it and also ran into the same inverted-quote problem when I tried to convert it in Calibre.
I wish I had a clue, but have settled for the Project Gutenberg Barsetshire novels that have no problems with inch-mark quote conversions to smart quotes. Must be the way he formats his books.
