Lesson 13. Styling a Block Quote > Applying the <blockquote> Element

Applying the <blockquote> Element

The <blockquote> element is often used to indent text. However, it should not be used for this purpose. It should only be used to mark up long quotations that consist of block level content.

For this lesson, you will need a quotation and a source or author for the quotation. These two items will be marked up as paragraphs and then placed inside a <blockquote>. The paragraph that contains the source information will be given a source class. A class is used in this case because you might want to have more than one <blockquote> on a page.
