comment csquotes: Using Auto Quotes to Create Block Quotes if Required
so for now we're stuck with the question: why is it only possible to assign a particular active char to \MakeBlockQuote once and for all? That seems so un-TeX-y to me.

looks like we can't. This (pastebin.com/hgmDiwU3) doesn't work either.

comment What font do you use for writing latex code?
PS: my personal compromise is to simply not read my writings on screen (where I use Courier New, which I consider perfect in that context), but on paper, i.e. the medium in which a possible reader will read it as well.

what exactly is it that you don't like about Verdana? It is widely considered one of the most well-crafted screen fonts. For a good reason IMHO.

this does look good, although it implies that the user would have to take care of the nesting themselves, i.e. take caution that inside the outer marks (triggering blockquote), different inner marks (triggering textquote) are used. This would defeat my the second part of my goal -- being able to type quotation marks in a uniform style throughout the document -- but will indeed provide for the desired automation, which is great.

I guess that's probably one of those pitfalls I wasn't aware of until now.

thanks egreg and Heiko for your replies. I'd like to emphasize that I don't question the usefulness of that message -- what I'm interested in (besides ways of silencing it) is why all that defining and redefining is going on in the first place (even without \section and friends). My concern, ultimately, is processing time, i.e. the question of how much faster would a TeX run be without these things.

no even disabling hyperref'ing with draft mode silences it :(
