Without trying to digest the entirety of the Mac OS Text Encoding system, can someone suggest a simple way to detect these characters?

You can use NSScanner with a character set containing quote characters. The ones you probably want are 0x201C and 0x201D, but if you need to scan foreign language strings as well, then you'll also need to add French-style quotes, Japanese-style quotes, etc...
