Thanks, I knew that, I just forgot in that post (and didn't preview it)

which would be translated to e.g: ``This is a nested `example'.''
That would be good indeed, but I don't think it's possible with current ePUB. With CSS I've used the ":after" and ":before" pseudo-classes together with "quotes" and "content: open-quote" or "content: close-quote" properties, but I don't think the ePUB specification supports these things now. I believe our only choice is hard-coding the quote marks, which is not so bad after all, there has to be a line in user-configurability...
