<blockquote> Blockquote

<blockquote> is a formatting element used to designate an extended quotation which should be spaced or set off from the text. Smaller quotations may be tagged with <emph>. <blockquote> may be used within: <accessrestrict>, <accruals>, <acqinfo>, <altformavail>, <appraisal>, <arrangement>, <bibliography>, <bioghist>, <controlaccess>, <custodhist>, <daodesc>, <descgrp>, <div>, <dsc>, <dscgrp>, <event>, <extref>, <extrefloc>, <fileplan>, <index>, <item>, <note>, <odd>, <originalsloc>, <otherfindaid>, <p>, <phystech>, <prefercite>, <processinfo>, <ref>, <refloc>, <relatedmaterial>, <scopecontent>, <separatedmaterial>, <titlepage>, and <userestrict>.

Attributes

  • ALTRENDER – not required. Use if the content of the element should be displayed or printed differently than the rendering established in a style sheet for other occurrences of the element.
  • AUDIENCE – not required. Use to set whether the element’s contents will be visible to external users or to internal ones. Possible values are: “internal” and “external.”
  • ID – not required. Creates an ID for element. Can be used for linking.

Subelements

The quotation within <blockquote> should not be plain-text but should rather be encoded within an <address>, <chronlist>, <list>, <note>, <p>, or <table> element.

		<blockquote>
			<p>No doubt the estate has exerted a tremendous influence on the development of my character. One may walk for an hour without glimpsing another soul, which has taught me to love tranquility.</p>
