Hi all,

In OOo, I set western language to English and CTL language to THAI. When I use
different fonts for each language and I typing a qoute characters, It can not
display correct quote character at start/end sentence. In my notice, it will
occur when swapping a language.

The AutoCorrection feature is replacing ASCII double-quotes by Unicode double
quotes U+201D/U+201D.  OOo is treating Unicode double quotes as "weak" ie not
inherently Western or CTL and thus determines whether to treat the Unicode
double quotes as Western or CTL depending on the font of the previous character.
 At the beginning of the paragraph, there is no previous character, so it uses
the default locale to determine how to treat them.  Strangely ASCII
double-quotes are not treated as "weak" but are always treated as Western. 
Overall, the current design is very confusing for users and produces the bizarre
effects mentioned above.

The fix to issue 42732 should improve things a bit on Windows, but not
completely solve the problem.

I would suggest treating Unicode punctuation characters as always Western, so
they always get the Western font not the CTL font.
