Sorry, I'm having difficulty seeing the benefit of replacing .png images with transparent background with the .jpg shown to the right. Not only is the background a fixed colour, which means it's use is restricted to normal body text only (and not here for example), but it's too heavily compressed and quite severely artifacted. Was there a problem with the original images that I wasn't aware of? Adam [ talk ] 03:05, 1 March 2008 (EST)

Aside from all the quotation marks when shown in a quote having a light blue box around them that makes the actual mark extremely hard to see? No, nothing at all.
As far as I'm aware the majority of quotes that use these marks are in normal body text which is why I chose that color. The example you used seems to be under (or soon to be under) modification, is there any other quotes that appear in front of the light blue, in which case I can simply make another template with the light blue background.
The size is exactly the same as the size of your png quotation marks and for what reason would a quotation mark ever need to be that size here? Knil 07:42, 1 March 2008 (EST)
If there was a problem with the rendering of the .png image, that's a different matter. But it's not something I was aware of; it looked perfect in my browser. Could you maybe take a screenshot of the problem and post it here? I'm curious to see how and why it was happening. Adam [ talk ] 14:05, 1 March 2008 (EST)
No longer possible as someone has deleted the original images. Knil 18:57, 1 March 2008 (EST)
I've restored the PNGs from the JPEGs. They seem to be rendering fine. • Pete | 08:54, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

Something strange

One thing I noticed while trying to use this template on Jabber Nut is that if you place it immediately after a Template:Item, then the main body of the quote gets pushed down below the info box, but the attribution line remains at the top. However, there were no such problems on Festari which suggests that there is some difference between Template:Item and Template:Character that causes this. I've had a look at the source for both templates and nothing obvious jumps out - perhaps someone with a higher degree in templatology could look at this at some point? • Pete | 08:50, 17 December 2009 (UTC)

I'm not surprised. This template gives me nothing but trouble. I still have no idea why. Dany too had issues with it, when she tried to use it to display all of the Fishman quotes. My guess is the use of images as quote tags. Axiomist (talk) 15:17, 17 December 2009 (UTC)
