Hi Robert,

the command only changed the interline space in the front matter, not in
the blockquotes placed in the front part.

Sorry, because it was my fault. Today, I realized my mistake.

frontpart is the sectionblock name for frontmatter. BTW, I didn’t know
it myself. Wolfgang explained to me in one of the many  replies I
received from him.

A correct sample should read:

    \dorecurse{2}{\input knuth\par
    \startblockquote\input zapf\stopblockquote}
    \dorecurse{2}{\input knuth\par
    \startblockquote\input zapf\stopblockquote}

But I don’t know whether the way of setting the interline space for
delimited texts is the best one.

Wolfgang, could you correct (or confirm) my previous statement?

I hope it helps now,
