HTML blockquote tag


Description:

The HTML blockquote tag inserts block quotations. As it is a block-level element, is useful, for example, to insert long quotations that are divided in paragraphs. User agents usually render the text inside this element indented. The <blockquote> tag specifies a section that is quoted from another source.

Browsers usually indent <blockquote> elements.

Difference between HTML and XHTML:

The <blockquote> tag should contain only block-level elements within it, and not just plain text.

Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5:

In HTML 4.01, the <blockquote> tag defines a long quotation.

In HTML5, the <blockquote> tag specifies a section that is quoted from another source.

Example:

<blockquote>Browsers generally render blockquote text as indented text. If your quoted text needs to display within a non-quoted paragraph, you should use the HTML q tag. Most browsers surround q text with quotation marks.</blockquote>
<q>Browsers generally render blockquote text as indented text. If your quoted text needs to display within a non-quoted paragraph, you should use the HTML q tag. Most browsers surround q text with quotation marks.</q>

This will produce following result:
