blockquote HTML: Main Tips

  • The <blockquote> HTML element indicates that content is a quotation.
  • When a quotation is inside the rest of the text, use the <q> element.

Usage of blockquote

A block quote HTML is a defined area, displaying a quote separately from the rest of the content.

Example
<p>There are many ways to gain knowledge: TV, books, Internet, etc. However, imagination starts to fade after childhood. Do not let your inner child fade!</p>
  <blockquote>Imagination is more important than knowledge.</blockquote>

You can add the URL source of the quotation by using the cite attribute. If a text specifies the source, use the <cite> as an element, not attribute.

The following block quote example shows the use of cite attribute:

Example
<blockquote cite="https://www.bitdegree.org/">The best way to learn programming while gaming.</blockquote>

In the next block quote example, we style the <blockquote> HTML:

Example
<blockquote style="background-color: pink;  border-width: 3px; border-style: solid;">Imagination is more important than knowledge.</blockquote>

Note: the opening <blockquote> tag must have a closing tag.
