Documentation icon Template documentation[view] [edit] [history] [purge]


This template surrounds a character string with double quotes " ", and inserts:

  • a narrow non-breaking space (U+202F) between the quote and the character string, except at the ending quote when the string ends with a punctuation character such as a comma (,), a period (.), an ellipsis (…), a colon (:), a semicolon (;).
  • 1/8th of an em in the case of a ! or a ?.

NOTE: This template was formerly used to insert “curly” quotation marks, but this usage is deprecated in favour of Wikisource's current style guidelines which stipulate that "straight" quotation marks are to be used instead.
