<BLOCKQUOTE> — NN all IE all HTML all

Synopsis

<BLOCKQUOTE>...</BLOCKQUOTE>

End Tag: Required

The BLOCKQUOTE element is intended to set off a long quote inside a document. Traditionally, the BLOCKQUOTE element has been rendered as an indented block, with wider left and right margins (about 40 pixels each), plus some extra whitespace above and below the block. Browsers will likely continue this type of rendering, although you are encouraged to use style sheets to create such displays (with or without the BLOCKQUOTE element). For inline quotations, see the Q element.

Example

<BLOCKQUOTE>Four score and seven years ago...
shall not perish from the earth</BLOCKQUOTE>
