Goal

This template provide a means to do pretty quotes.

Usage

{{cquote|Quote of someone|Person that is quoted}}

Person that is quoted is optional but highly recommended.

Example

{{cquote|... FlightGear .. is completely open source — it has a rich set of existing external interfaces, and most of the major configuration can be done with standard XML-based text files. We make no attempts to obfuscate or hide our internals. This is big win for people using FlightGear as an academic or research platform, or for those that want to interface it to their own home-built cockpits|Curtis L. Olson}}

Tools

To create proper cquotes automatically, see the JavaScript-based browser extension at Fixing up articles with wrong quotes, which allows you to select a relevant piece of text from a FlightGear related discussion channel (devel list archives, forum, issue tracker or gitorious commit log) and obtain a properly filled in cquote for your selection, all with a single click.

Known issues

The <ref> wiki tag can not be used in the Person that is quoted parameter. The work-around is to instead use them in the end of the Quote of someone parameter.
