Next: Quotations Up: Essential LATEX Previous: Document Styles and Style


We mentioned earlier the idea of identifying a quotation to LATEX so that it could arrange to typeset it correctly. To do this you enclose the quotation between the commands \begin{quotation} and \end{quotation}. This is an example of a LATEX construction called an environment. A number of special effects are obtained by putting text into particular environments.
