Hi Idris,

there is no perfect solution in ConTeXt because the \quotation and the
\start/stopquotation commands are defined with the same definition and it is
not possible to disable the quote marks for the one and enable it for the
but you can use ConTeXt's mechanism for nested quotations and redefine the
other one.



  [location=margin, % paragraph


\input knuth

\quotation{I'm a quoteted text \quotation{within another quoteted text} and

\input knuth

\input knuth
