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.:

        &ldquo;Is &lsquo;hiding&rsquo; 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 ", &rdquo;, 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.

At this moment, you can see the bug in action at http://beyondtheorylogistics.com/why.
