The purpose of this package is to provide consistent quotation
marks throughout your document. To quote text use either \tqt{text}
or \begin{qt}text\end{qt}.

The style can be changed either via package options, or through the
use of commands, so if, say, you have used single inverted commas
throughout your document, and then your publisher tells you that you
must use double inverted commas, this can be achieved by editing a
single line, rather than trying to work out how to get your editor's
search and replace function to work on closing quotes without changing
apostrophes or acute accents.

There is also an added advantage in that using the text-block
command or the environment provided by this package will
ensure that failing to close a quotation will result in an error.
Paragraph breaks within a quotation are dealt with

This package detects if babel has been loaded, and will use the
punctuations marks for the current language.

See the documentation for more details.

To extract the code from the documented source file do:

latex quotmark.ins

This will create the file quotmark.sty and some .def files.

Move quotmark.sty and the .def files to somewhere LaTeX will find it 
(e.g. texmf/tex/latex/quotmark/) and remember to update the TeX 

To extract the documentation do:

latex quotmark.dtx
makeindex -s gind.ist quotmark
latex quotmark.dtx
latex quotmark.dtx

Place the resulting file (quotmark.dvi) into the documentation
directory (e.g. texmf/doc/latex/quotmark/).

Read the file CHANGES for version changes.

quot­mark – Con­sis­tent quote marks

The pack­age pro­vides a means of en­sur­ing con­sis­tent quote marks through­out your doc­u­ment. The style can be changed ei­ther via pack­age op­tion or com­mand, and the pack­age de­tects lan­guage se­lec­tions (from the ba­bel or nger­man pack­ages), and uses the punc­tu­a­tion marks ap­pro­pri­ate for the cur­rent lan­guage.

The au­thor now con­sid­ers the pack­age ob­so­lete, and rec­om­mends use of csquotes in its place.
