A blockquote element is a block level element that can be used directly as a sub-element in the body element. You can use blockquote elements to specify a block of paragraphs to be displayed in a quotation format. Here are basic rules about blockquote elements:

  • "blockquote" elements can only have block elements as contents.
  • "blockquote" elements can have empty contents.
  • "blockquote" elements can not have PCDATA as contents.
  • "blockquote" elements can not have in-line elements contents.
  • "blockquote" elements are block elements. They can not be used as in-line elements.
  • "blockquote" elements are displayed with extra left margin and right margin.

Here is a good example of blockquote elements:

 <body>
  <blockquote><p>
  "You may never know what results come of your action,
  but if you do nothing there will be no result."
  </p></blockquote>
 </body>
