Yes, I've noticed this option exists, the problem is not just with Letter
document class. The problem that babel-spanish activates '<' and '>'
at the beginning of the document (unless the es-noquoting option
is passed or the macro \deactivatequoting is issued before that), so using


won't work correctly. I've made a bug report at babel-spanish,
and I'm waiting for a reply from Javier.

It fixes the problem only for the example file. But all other files would
still have '<' and '>' activated, and from the line


in the languages file we are clearly trying to avoid that.
I don't think passing the option es-noquoting is good for a general solution,
as it prevents from users to activate '<' and '>' if they would like
to, probably
adding to the preamble the line \deactivatequoting is the best way to go.

Let's wait and see what Javier is saying at
