Default Quotation marks: have to hit space bar for them to appear

I use Word in Office 2003. Whenever I type quotation marks, they do not
appear on the screen unless I hit the space bar. It happens at the beginning
and the end of a quote. It seems to be the only character that behaves that
way. Does not matter if I use smart or regular quotation marks.
I cannot find anything relating to this behavior in the various tabs in Word.

Any ideas?

Your keyboard is probably set to some other language where the Quote
key is a dead key that triggers some other action, like a variant form
or an accented form of some letter.

You deal with this in different ways depending on what your version of
Windows is, but they involve Start Control Panel Regional &
Language Options.
