​Yes, gmail is all too happy to turn the ASCII quotes into the "fancy"
quotes (note how they don't go straight down, but curl toward the text).
Same type of deal with hyphens getting replaced with n- or m-dashes...
Copy-paste doesn't really work here.

So to Nihan -- make sure you're not copying and pasting from a place that
formats text for humans (like word, email, ... etc.) -- if you're in doubt,
replace your quotes with ones you type by hand (or just get rid of them).

All the best,
