Opening quotation mark with ellipsis problem #253
correctly puts opening and closing quotation marks:
Whereas having an ellipsis at the beginning of the quote
gives two closing quotation marks
Behavior is the same for HTML and LaTeX output. It's not a big issue, but having an ellipsis at the beginning of a quotation is quite common in typesetting.
The smart quote feature in kramdown is certainly not complete and getting this right in general is a really hard problem. If I were to create kramdown now I would probably leave the smart quotes out completely.
However, I think that in this case it would a) be easy to add and b) pose no compatibility problems - I will have a look.
