Differences between Spanish and English Citations?

Citation formats are supposed to be universal, but in looking at some of the wiki articles there are 'greater' and 'less than' signs used in leu of quotation marks. Is this normal?

Why should citation formats -- or, for that matter, quotation marks -- be universal? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Non-English_usage_of_quotation_marks#Spanish will clear things up for you. (See also http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guillemet .)
