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.
