ABOUT

This package provides advanced facilities for inline and display
quotations. It is designed for a wide range of tasks ranging from
the most simple applications to the more complex demands of formal
quotations. The facilities include commands, environments, and
user-definable 'smart quotes' which dynamically adjust to their
context. Quotation marks are switched automatically if quotations
are nested and they can be adjusted to the current language. There
are additional facilities designed to cope with the more specific
demands of academic writing, especially in the humanities and the
social sciences. All quote styles as well as the optional active
quotes are freely configurable.

SEMI-AUTOMATIC INSTALLATION

1. Download the file

   http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/install/macros/latex/contrib/csquotes.tds.zip

2. Unpack the archive in the root directory of the local TeX

   or
	C:\Local TeX Files\

3. Update the file hash tables (also known as the file name
   database).
   
   On teTeX and TeX Live systems, run texhash as root ('sudo
   texhash'). On MiKTeX, run 'initexmf --update-fndb' in a command
   window or use the 'Refresh FNDB' button of the MiKTeX Options
   window.

MANUAL INSTALLATION

1. Copy the files 'csquotes.sty', 'csquotes.def', 'csq-compat.def',
   and 'csquotes.cfg' to

	<TEXMFLOCAL>/tex/latex/csquotes/

   where <TEXMFLOCAL> denotes the root of the local TeX installation
   tree, for example

	/usr/local/share/texmf/
   or
	/usr/share/texmf-local/
   or
	C:\Local TeX Files\

2. The file 'csquotes.pdf' goes to

	<TEXMFLOCAL>/doc/latex/csquotes/

3. Update the file hash tables (also known as the file name

csquotes – Con­text sen­si­tive quo­ta­tion fa­cil­i­ties

This pack­age pro­vides ad­vanced fa­cil­i­ties for in­line and dis­play quo­ta­tions. It is de­signed for a wide range of tasks rang­ing from the most sim­ple ap­pli­ca­tions to the more com­plex de­mands of for­mal quo­ta­tions. The fa­cil­i­ties in­clude com­mands, en­vi­ron­ments, and user-de­fin­able ‘smart quotes’ which dy­nam­i­cally ad­just to their con­text. Quo­ta­tion marks are switched au­to­mat­i­cally if quo­ta­tions are nested and they can be ad­justed to the cur­rent lan­guage if the ba­bel pack­age is avail­able. There are ad­di­tional fa­cil­i­ties de­signed to cope with the more spe­cific de­mands of aca­demic writ­ing, es­pe­cially in the hu­man­i­ties and the so­cial sci­ences. All quote styles as well as the op­tional ac­tive quotes are freely con­fig­urable.

The pack­age is de­pen­dent on e-TeX, and re­quires the au­thor’s etool­box pack­age.
