There are articles about citation in HTML and a lot of them say using <q></q> tags is not recommended due to some old or rare browsers cannot display quotation marks around <q>such text</q>. Do you have real examples when browsers couldn't do that if web developer specified lang of the page (<html lang=".."></html>)? Ever faced this problem in real life?
As a general rule: Don't write html using workarounds for old crappy browsers. Tell your users to upgrade their browser instead.
That's all general recommendations. Thanks. But I would like to know if anyone these days really experienced this problem.
Since <q> is not often used i doubt you will get a lot of feedback other than what Mr. Elendig said. <q> should be fully supported from IE8 and up, IE6 and 7 will render any styling but won't add the quotation marks. Not a real problem i would personally say.
a lot of them say using <q></q> tags is not recommended
What is "a lot of them" and how old are those articles?

Ah, just read a few during about a year. How old are them - haven't looked for date...
You shouldn't really read any guide predating html5 either these days
