[OS X TeX] Quoting in XeLaTeX

How should one produce proper quotation marks in XeLaTeX? Apparently,  
the regular LaTeX way, i.e.

         ``something in quotes''

(opening with two backquotes and close with two forward quotes) works  
if no specific font is indicated, but as soon as one selects a font  
the above
just places the same back- and forward quote characters, yielding an  
ugly output...

A minimal example:

%!TEX TS-program = xelatex
%!TEX encoding = UTF-8 Unicode




\font\txt="Verdana" at 10pt

``something in quotes''
