Well, the line in the source

% !TEX encoding = UTF-8

that was supposed to force saving as UTF-8 is wrong and I didn't  
notice when I copied/pasted it into TeXShop. It should have been

% !TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode

and I blindly saved it while my TeXShop is defaulted to MacOS Roman.  
Sigh. The double quotes are there now (and the fall back is Latin  

Good Luck,
