I'm going to be re-typesetting some old books (from the late 18th Century) in the coming weeks, and a few of them are old enough that they use an archaic typographic convention for quotation: every line of a multi-line quote begins with an open quotation mark. This is subtly different from a decorated block quote (see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quotation_mark#History), since there is no margin change or other indicator, except that each line is decorated on the left.
I have a nagging feeling I've seen a package that actually does this, but the search terms make it pretty unfindable. Does anybody have any advice for reproducing this behavior? I'd actually like to capture it as part of the project.
Here's an example I've found in Google Books: http://books.google.com/books?id=nY8FAAAAQAAJ&dq=review&pg=PA190#v=onepage&q&f=false .
As you can see, the quotation start is indicated by
‘ inline where it starts, but the first character set on every subsequent line is also
‘ until the quote closes. In other words, the quote mark occurs at the start (with some following space, actually) of every newline created, after the quotation opens, and only until the quotation closes.
