Using a quote template

Jump to: navigation, search

Hi Irwin,

I moved the quote on this page to use a cquote template. What do you think? Another option is to use the quotation template, which has a different look. Probably we should pick one and use it consistently for all quotations in the course.

Also, while we are discussing the quote, I think the quote has typos/conversion errors, eg. can' I think should be can't, and seems like the later apostrophe needs a match.

Best, Alison

Hi Alison,

I like the cquote - it's breaks up the page. Anything we can do to avoid long strips of text... And yes there are conversion errors for both single and double quotation marks. This seems to happen when I use the WE export plugin in Open Office (which is how I convert the files). I'm cleaning them up after I find them.

Hi Irwin,

Glad you like it. As to the conversion errors, I wonder if Jim Tittsler is aware of the errors. He has google plus office hours on Thursdays. I think the hangout starts at 5pm est. Might be useful to get his thoughts on the conversion process. If I'm around tomorrow, I'll pop in.

Good point Alison. I'll see if I can make it in there as well. Irwin

Except he is off hiking somewhere and won't be around this week or next. Sorry.

Yes I would be sorry too if for some reason I had to go hiking... ;)

Have a good time Jim!
