Follow-up Comment #1, bug #53884 (project wget):

I've noticed this before but never really thought about it.  However, it seems
likely that this behavior might be modulated by the LANG* environment

I checked in an Emacs shell window, and wget did use non-ASCII quote
characters.  But also,
$ printenv | grep LANG

If I do
$ LANG=en_US wget google.com
wget limits itself to ASCII quotes.

So it seems likely that the LANG variable is specified to tell what character
set the program may use, and the relevant libraries respect that.
