LaTeX: Fix for Backward Quotation Mark

In LaTeX, if you write quotation (punctuation) mark in normal way then you will get into problem. Normally we write word with quotation as: “Your words”. This is displayed as ”Your words” in LaTeX (both opening and closing quote facing the same side).

The proper way of writing quotation in LaTeX is:

You can also use csquotes package for this purpose.

Note: The quotation facility is context sensitive. Single quote and Double quote will toggle if you use ‘english’ (american) as option for the babel package. I have used ‘british’ option for babel package.

Here is the sample document code using csquotes package.


Hope this helps.
