The <BLOCKQUOTE> Element

You use the <BLOCKQUOTE> element for indented quotations, and most browsers will indent text in this element automatically. This element object has two properties beyond the core HTML properties we covered in Chapter 5blockDirection and cite—and you can find these properties in Table 11.2. As with the other HTML elements we cover in this and the coming chapters, JavaScript’s core HTML properties, methods, and events are also supported by this element. See Chapters 5 and 6 for the details.

Table 11.2. The Properties of the <BLOCKQUOTE> Element (See Chapters 5 and 6 for the JavaScript core HTML properties, methods, and events that also apply to this element.)
Property NS2 NS3 NS4 NS6 IE3a IE3b IE4 IE5 IE5.5 IE6
blockDirection        x x x
  Read-only
  This property indicates whether the content in the block element flows from left to right, or from right to left. Set to a string: ltr for content that goes left to right, or rtl for content that goes right to left.
cite          x
  Read/write
  This property sets or retrieves reference information about the object. You set this to a URL string holding a citation reference. (The browser will not navigate to that URL automatically as it would for a hyperlink.)
