Just wondering how some of you would handle this. Yesterday I was putting together an ad that included a three-sentence extract from a review. Only the final sentence needed to be in boldface. I made the decision to keep the close quote in bold, even though I had started the little paragraph with a normal-weight open quote.
As I assessed the appearance of the 'graph, it seemed less distracting to keep the open quote the same color as the top two lines (rom) and to make the close quote the same color as the last line (bf), even if it made the pair of quotes asymmetrical. Does this seem logical to you? (Quotes were same size as text.)
