Use[edit]

This is used to indent a block of text on the Webpage. Good for long quotes. It also cites the quote via a URL.

Example[edit]

<p>This is a paragraph the is on the webpage that will not be indented. It will
only be an ordinary block of text.</p>
 
<blockquote cite="http://www.qoutesofourtime.com/freud/works.html">
<p>This paragraph will be indented. This is where the qoute will be added or a block of text
the user wants to use without worrying about margins.</p>
</blockquote>
 
<p>We are now back to the ordinary text. The margins are back to <i>default</i>. The text
continues to go like this until the attributes change.</p>
