I think the best way to generate quotes in DocBook is using the <quote>
element -- that way you get whatever quotes are most appropriate for the
target language automatically in your output.

It's not really the same -- your Wordpress instance uses the meta
element while your DocBook processor writes it in the XML declaration.
Seeing as only one of the two works, browsers probably need the the meta
element version.
