The quoting package
Thomas Titz


As an alternative to the LaTeX standard environments quotation and
quote, the quoting package provides a consolidated environment for
displayed text. First-line indentation is activated by adding a blank
line before the quoting environment. A key--value interface allows to
configure font properties and spacing and to control orphans within and
after the environment.

quot­ing – Con­sol­i­dated en­vi­ron­ment for dis­played text

As an al­ter­na­tive to the stan­dard en­vi­ron­ments quo­ta­tion and quote, the pack­age pro­vides a con­sol­i­dated en­vi­ron­ment for dis­played text. First-line in­den­ta­tion may be ac­ti­vated by adding a blank line be­fore the quot­ing en­vi­ron­ment. A key-value in­ter­face (us­ing kvop­tions) al­lows the user to con­fig­ure font prop­er­ties and spac­ing and to con­trol or­phans within and af­ter the en­vi­ron­ment.
