What the incorrect word wrapping looks like.

This bug was originally posted to the Chromium issue tracker, but I brought it
here because somebody reported the same issue in Safari.

I have some elements in my HTML that contain quotations that end with 
question marks, i.e.:

        “Is ‘hiding’ the real prices a sign of trust and 

In Chrome, the quote character after the question mark is wrapping to the 
next line.  This happens for ", ”, and even '.  The other browsers do 
the right thing and keep the question mark and quote fixed to the last word 
of the sentence.  I experienced this with blockquotes, but I verified the 
same thing happens for paragraphs.
