That is a problem with the encoding.
You see “ instead of “ if a Western or Windows encoding is selected instead of Unicode (UTF-8).

  • Firefox > Web Developer > Character Encoding
  • View > Character Encoding

You can see that on this page if you select (F10) View > Character Encoding > Western (ISO-8859-1).
