Why are open­ing quotes not be­ing styled?

This plu­g­in of­fers an op­tion to wrap ini­tial quotes in a span of class quo or dquo. You can then style these class­es in your CSS stylesheet. This is use­ful if you want to-​for example-​negatively in­dent quotes so the quote hangs in the left mar­gin and the text is aligned with the text below.

Please note, this ap­plies on­ly to ini­tial quotes — quotemarks that ap­pear as the first char­ac­ter of a block of text (like a para­graph or block­quote). This does not ap­ply to all open­ing quotes.
