The blockquote element allows text quoted from another source to be rendered in a particular way.

A typical rendering might be a slight extra left and right indent, and/or italic font. blockquote causes a paragraph break, and typically provides a line or so of white space before and after the quote.

Single-font rendition may reflect the quotation style of Internet mail by putting a vertical line of graphic characters (such as the greater than symbol, >) in left margin.

An example of using the blockquote element is:

I think it ends

<blockquote>Soft you now, the fair Ophelia. Nymph,
in thy orisons, be all my sins remembered.
but I am not sure.
