Hi Uwe, the problems occurs when i write, for example (and happens 
always, at least to me):
code Tex:
``campo" y ``carga"
(English quotes) campo ²(English quotes)carga(English quotes)
i don't know because appears this two (is like a square but mare larger) 
in the archive .dvi. Appears whenever i write ``word" y ``other word", 
the "y" in spanish is equivalent to "and" in english.
I could not install yet csquotes, because i have't Internet in this machine.

The preambule say:


\oddsidemargin 0in
%\textwidth 6.75in
%\topmargin 0in
%\textheight 8.5in
%\parindent 0em
%\parskip 2ex
\usepackage{upgreek} %para letras griegas en modo matemático
\usepackage{pb-diagram} %para diagramas conmutativos
%\usepackage{esint} % para la integral doble
\usepackage{amssymb} %para usar el \therefore
