Quotes and Blockquotes

There are two common ways of marking up quotations in HTML: quote (<q>...</q>) and blockquote (<blockquote>...</blockquote>).

The quote tag defines a short quotation. Browsers normally insert quotation marks around the quotation.

The blockquote tag specifies a section that is quoted from another source. Browsers usually indent blockquote elements.

<q>This is an quote element, good for keeping quotes inline with other paragraph text.</q>

  Sometimes a quote spans multiple sentences or lines.<br/>
  Longer quotes are better served in a blockquote element.
