In German, guillemets are actually only used like that – contrary to, for example, French. I got in the habit of using them almost exclusively, and usually enter them explicitly (most non-Windows keyboard layouts have them in a convenient location). If this is confusing to non-German readers, though, I suppose I should reconsider their use.

Oh, I didn't know that — thanks! But yes, to me it looked like I had some fonts wrong or something.
