Mark up quotations with the Q and BLOCKQUOTE elements. Do not use them for formatting effects such as indentation.
To Checkpoints for Guideline 3.
Quotation marks and quotation styles vary from language to language. Using the Q element (instead of typing the ASCII equivalent of quotation marks) will allow international browsers to properly display the required quote system. Therefore, please use the Q element to insert quotation marks, like this:
"I'm going home at midnight!"
<Q lang="en-us"> I'm going home at midnight!</Q>
Access Note: The Q element is not widely supported yet. Until it is, you will have to continue to add quotation marks manually. The "lang" attribute of the Q element is expected to cause the language-specific quotation symbols or rules to be applied during the rendering of the quote. To the best of our knowledge, this feature is also not supported by any browser.
