Quotation blocks

Quoting a large body of text and making it stand out from the rest of text can be accomplished with the <blockquote> tag. The tag indents the quotation block on both the left and right, and also adds a blank line above and below. The amount of indentation used on both sides may vary from browser. The following code shows the <blockquote> tag in use:

<p>This is some text before the quotation.</p>
<blockquote>This is a long blockquote created with the <blockquote> tag.</blockquote>

The following shows the output of the above code:

This is some text before the quotation.

This is a long blockquote created with the <blockquote> tag.
