# [texhax] quotation marks with babel in LuaLaTeX

Hi all,

this might be a rather stupid question, but please consider the
following document, for lualatex:

\documentclass[ngerman]{scrartcl}
\usepackage{babel,fontspec}
\setmainfont{Linux Libertine O}

\begin{document}
„“  " "'
\end{document}

The quotation marks produced by babel shorthands are obviously the wrong
ones, taken from cmr. As I use the correct unicode input, I have never
had problems with this, but now – how do people without unicode input
use the correct quotation marks? Speaking of “normal” people who won't
do \let\glqq„ in their document or so …

cheers
Arno
