Put the following script in the of your page,
wherever you want the quotes to appear. Simply set up the
quotations in the Quotations[] array, then paste in the
whole block of code. To format the text, wrap the usual
font tags around the script (view source on our demo on this
page for an example.)


In quotation 8, note the text, “beauty” — if you need
to use double-quote ” marks, you *must* precede each
double-quote with a backslash … otherwise the script
will break.
