“Mark up quotations. Do not use quotation markup for formatting effects such as indentation.”

Do not use the <blockquote> tag for indentation. Use a styled <div> tag, for example, for indentation. Reserve the <blockquote> tag for quotations. In other words, use structural markup for structure and display markup for visuals.

Example

<blockquote cite="http://www.example.com/loveslabourlost"> <p>Remuneration! O! that’s the Latin word for three farthings. --- William Shakespeare (Love’s Labor Lost).</p></blockquote>
