           Summary: Double quotes do not stick to question marks when
           Product: WebKit
           Version: 526+ (Nightly build)
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: Mac OS X 10.5
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: Normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Layout and Rendering
        AssignedTo: webkit-unassigned at lists.webkit.org
        ReportedBy: mwp1 at cornell.edu

When a double-quote is next to a question mark at a line break point, then the
double-quote can separate from the question mark when wrapping. This is
especially noticeable when reading dialog in narrow, frequently wrapped

For example, the string "Hello?" could be wrapped so that "Hello? appears on
one line, and then a stray " appears at the beginning of the next line. I.e.,
it turns into:


I've attached an HTML file that demonstrates this behavior, provided you resize
the browser window until you see the wrap. For comparison, Mozilla always keeps
the quotes attached to the question mark. Also, note that this only seems to be
a problem with question marks: periods next to quotation marks are never
separated when rendered with webkit, nor are exclamation points.
