Thanks Casey, and I have a question for you:

In the Special section, I see "left quote" and "right quote". I assume that
the software that is using these messages laters, knows that a "left quote"
appears first in LTR languages, but appears last RTL ones. If it doesn't,
either it should be considered in the software, or the "left/right quote"
pair should be changed to "starting quote" and "ending quote".
