4.7. Block Quotes
A common element in conventional documents is the block quote, a
lengthy copy of text from another document. Traditionally, short quotes
are set off with quotation marks, and block quotes are made entirely of
separate paragraphs within the main document, typically with special in-
dentation and sometimes italicizedfeatures that you may change through
style or class definitions (see Chapter 8 ) .
4.7.1. The <blockquote> Tag
All of the text within the <blockquote> and </blockquote> tags is set off
from the regular document text, usually with indented left and right mar-
gins and sometimes in italicized typeface. Actual rendering varies from
browser to browser, of course.
