      Hm. Here these characters are displayed with the same (narrow) glyph as
      a plain double quote in Bitstream Vera Sans Mono, but with FZFangSong
      U+201C is a 66 quote occupying the right half of its wide glyph while
      U+201D is a 99 quote in the left half of _its_ wide glyph (well, maybe I
      should say right-top and left-top quarters), so that with
      ambiwidth=single U+201C is overprinted on the next character while it's
      only the blank right half of U+201D which is overprinted on _its_ follower.
