If I go full unicode desktop, how do I get both double quotation marks (opening and closing) to render as a " and not as a `` or a ''?

I think that '' and `` are butt ugly compared to "

You mean “ and ”? Having them render that way is a matter of changing the input.

Yeah, but on my terminal they render as double apostrophes and double backticks. I want them both to render to the single quote mark, because using apostrophes and backticks to render quotation marks is butt ugly.

I forgot to mention that I already read that.

Sorry for not posting that.

I haven't found anything in that document yet about how to change how a single unicode character renders in a terminal. I want it to be a single " glyph, instead of two ' or ` glyphs.
