Resending as plain-text ... If somebody could point me in the direction of 
the code that might be responsible for this, I'll try to take a look.

....

If the following org file is exported as HTML, any *strong* markup for words 
at the beginning or the end of the input string are ignored.  (I have 
included several slight variations to help testing.)

    #+TITLE: Test MACRO with *strong* Markup Input
    #+OPTIONS: date:nil timestamp:nil num:nil stat:t title:t toc:nil
    #+MACRO: quote @@html:<span class="quote">&ldquo;@@$1@@html:&rdquo;</span>@@

    * Test macro with non-marked text:
    Demonstrating that, {{{quote(This is a vanilla quote without markup)}}},
    Abraham Lincoln.

    {{{quote(This is a similar control quote without markup)}}}, George
    Washington said.

    * Test macro with leading *strongly* marked text:
    Wilson quipped, {{{quote(*Not all* quotes are important!)}}}.

    {{{quote(*But this* is a very important quote)}}}, Thomas Jefferson replied.

    * Test macro with trailing *strongly* marked text:
    Retorted Yoda, {{{quote(Critical if not uncertain\, all *my quotes are*)}}}.

    {{{quote(I am certain they are *all uncertain*)}}}, Anakin sneered.

    * Test macro with leading, middle, and trailing marked text:
    Darth Vader threatened, {{{quote(*All* of *my quotes* are *heeded
    carefully!*)}}}.

    {{{quote(*Nobody* listens to *meesa* quotes. *Why?*)}}}, Jar-Jar whined.

The condensed filtered HTML output is:

    ...
    <h2 id="org40a1103">Test macro with non-marked text:</h2>
    <p>Demonstrating that, <span class="quote">&ldquo;This is a vanilla
    quote without markup&rdquo;</span>, Abraham Lincoln.</p>
    <p><span class="quote">&ldquo;This is a similar control quote without
    markup&rdquo;</span>, George Washington said.</p>

    <h2 id="org962a914">Test macro with leading <b>strongly</b> marked
    text:</h2>
    <p>Wilson quipped, <span class="quote">&ldquo;*Not all* quotes are
    important!&rdquo;</span>.</p>
    <p><span class="quote">&ldquo;*But this* is a very important
    quote&rdquo;</span>, Thomas Jefferson replied.</p>

    <h2 id="org47bf84f">Test macro with trailing <b>strongly</b> marked
    text:</h2>
    <p>Retorted Yoda, <span class="quote">&ldquo;Critical if not uncertain,
    all *my quotes are*&rdquo;</span>.</p>
    <p><span class="quote">&ldquo;I am certain they are *all
    uncertain*&rdquo;</span>, Anakin sneered.</p>

    <h2 id="org08c1694">Test macro with leading, middle, and trailing marked
    text:</h2>
    <p>Darth Vader threatened, <span class="quote">&ldquo;*All* of <b>my
    quotes</b> are *heeded carefully!*&rdquo;</span>.</p>
    <p><span class="quote">&ldquo;*Nobody* listens to <b>meesa</b> quotes.
    *Why?*&rdquo;</span>, Jar-Jar whined.</p>
    ...

Notice how the *strong* marks are only transformed into <b></b> tags inside 
a string, not at the boundaries.

Can anybody confirm or explain what I am doing wrong?

Thanks!

Trevor

Hello, a possible dirty solution could be defining the macro with two
Unicode zero-width spaces (u+200b):

#+MACRO: quote (eval (concat "@@html:<span class=\"quote\">&ldquo;@@" "\u200B"  $1 "\u200B" "@@html:&rdquo;</span>@@"))

Regards,

Juan Manuel

You're welcome. Some time ago I had a similar problem with a LaTeX
command with arguments that I wanted to include in a macro. Since the
character U+200b is a kind of "ghost space", it can act as an "invisible
barrier" between the emphasis marks and the characters that precede or
follow them. An emergency cure ;-)

Regards,

Juan Manuel
