comment How to create “local” footnotes in block quotes?
That's great - the custom numbering is exactly what I needed. But which parts are actually required to make this work - for example, do I need makeatletter and patchcmd lines?

comment Biblatex bibliography quotes break when using fontspec
In fact Ligatures should be used instead, as per fontspec manual: but for consistency Ligatures=TeX will perform the same function as Mapping=tex-text.

comment Biblatex bibliography quotes break when using fontspec
In his answer Alan uses [Ligatures=TeX]. What is the advantage of using [Mapping=tex-text] or vise versa?

comment Change the font of the block quote?
I guess I also don't want to learn about all the font features that do not related to Xetex - as it does things completely differently from what I understand. Most of the books out there - cover the font with the use of the babel and such.

comment Change the font of the block quote?
I guess I am asking what I need to learn/read so that I could figure out anything by myself - not only the renewenvironment command... That link looks good! Thanks

Sorry, but what is an "italic correction"? Does it only apply to math mode, or anything the command is used inside any other command - like \textbf?
