# Typewriter quotation marks in texttt

I'd like to do the text

"conservative"


with the quotation marks into a \texttt. However, when I do so, the first quotation mark is removed. I'm using the LNCS documentclass, I'm not sure if this has something to do with it. I also can't escape the first ", then it puts two dots above the c, which is wrong.

1. Please add a minimal working example (MWE). \documentclass{llncs} \begin{document} \texttt{"conservative"} \end{document} does it here. 2. \" is not escaping. –  Qrrbrbirlbel Dec 9 '12 at 22:59

this is a bit of a plain-tex hack, but it'll get you what you want.

\texttt{\char\"}


you might want to make this into a command:

\newcommand{\ditto}{\texttt{\char\"}}

Never mind the hack, this is nice. Thanks. –  LLNCS Dec 9 '12 at 23:29
@LLNCS You probably can avoid hacks; why didn't you provide a MWE? –  egreg Dec 10 '12 at 13:34
