The manual has now been posted on the bibletechnologies.net home page 
along with the schema.
The <q> and <speech> elements now have a marker attribute for the 
specific quotation mark, which will satisfy markup needs.
For a continuation quotation marker <milestone type="cQuote" 
n="&quot;"/> can be used, where the attribute n contains the specific 
quotation mark.

The <q> element also predefines 3 types of quotes: block, citation and 
embedded. As usual, x- can be used to extend the set of types.
