13.10.13 Quote blocks in LaTeX export

The LaTeX export back-end accepts two attributes for quote blocks: ‘:environment’, for an arbitrary quoting environment (the default value is that of org-latex-default-quote-environment: "quote") and ‘:options’. For example, to choose the environment ‘quotation’, included as an alternative to ‘quote’ in standard LaTeX classes:

#+ATTR_LATEX: :environment quotation
#+BEGIN_QUOTE
some text...
#+END_QUOTE

To choose the ‘foreigndisplayquote’ environment, included in the LaTeX package ‘csquotes’, with the ‘german’ option, use this syntax:

#+LATEX_HEADER:\usepackage[autostyle=true]{csquotes}
#+ATTR_LATEX: :environment foreigndisplayquote :options {german}
#+BEGIN_QUOTE
some text in German...
#+END_QUOTE

which is exported to LaTeX as

\begin{foreigndisplayquote}{german}
some text in German...
\end{foreigndisplayquote}
