# 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
• For the record, the problem seems to have been fixed, at least with TeX Live 2016 and llncs.cls 2015/06/24 v2.20. – lhf Jan 10 '17 at 9:38

\texttt{\char\"}

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

A bit simpler: \texttt{"{}conservative"{}}
