    quotes: "«" "»"         /* Set open-quote and close-quote to the French quotation marks */

    The open-quote and close-quote values of the content property produce no quotation marks.
    [<string> <string>]+
    One or more pairs of <string> values for open-quote and close-quote. The first pair represents the outer level of quotation, the second pair is for the first nested level, next pair for third level and so on.
