That you use UTF-8 terminals is completely irrelevant; you are confusing
two distinct concepts here -- a character encoding (UTF-8), and the
*font* used for display.  No matter that the encoding is UTF-8,
depending on configured choice of font, your "typographic" quotes may
look nicely balanced, or horrendously ghastly; what looks nice to you
may look hideous to others, with a different font configuration.
