Synopsis

<Q>...</Q>

End Tag: Required

The Q element is intended to set off an inline quote inside a document. The HTML 4.0 specification indicates that browsers should automatically surround the content of a Q element with language-sensitive quotation marks, and that authors should not include quotes. Internet Explorer 4 does not render such quote marks. If you need quotes around quoted text, you have no choice at this point but to include them yourself and not use the Q element (because a future browser may add those quotes to the content). For a block-level quotation, see the BLOCKQUOTE element.

Example

<P>The preamble to the U.S. Constitution begins,
<Q>We the People of the United States</Q></P>
