Syntax (autogenerated)

\startquote[...][...,...] ... \stopquote
instance of \startdelimitedtext


\startquote[...,...,...] ... \stopquotation
[...,...,...] left middle right

\setupindenting[yes, small]

% A demonstration that \quote{} only responds to `left` and `right`
\setupquote[color=red, left=«, right=»]
