Web | Blockquote tag

Page 79

The <blockquote> tag defines a long quotation.

A browser inserts white space before and after a blockquote element. It also insert margins for the blockquote element.


<!DOCTYPE html>
<html>
<body>

<p>Here is a quote from WWF’s website:
<blockquote cite=”http://www.wwf.org“>
WWF’s ultimate goal is to build a future where people live in harmony with nature.
</blockquote>
We hope that they succeed.
</p>

</body>
</html>

Note: To validate a blockquote element as strict HTML/XHTML, the element must contain only other block-level elements, like this:

<blockquote>
<p>Here is a long quotation here is a long quotation</p>
</blockquote>
