HTML Lesson 3: Using the Blockquote Element

Key Points

  • When developing a website you may need to use a quote. When using quotes you may or may not want them to stand out from the rest of the text. If you want them to stand out from the rest of the text you can use the blockquote element to display a block of quoted text, indenting from the left and right margins.
  • To use the blockquote:
    <blockquote>
    Quoted text here
    </blockquote>
  • Actual example (you can format the text more specifically in the block quote as you need to).
    <blockquote>
    Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower. <i>-Steve Jobs</i>
    </blockquote>
