Use of blockquote, q and cite tags in HTML
  • Last Updated : 25 May, 2020

HTML | blockquote Tag: The <blockquote> tag in HTML is used to display the long quotations (a section that is quoted from another source). It changes the alignment to make it unique from others. It contains both opening and closing tags.

Syntax:

<blockquote>
        <p>The quote is input here.</p>
</blockquote>

Example: In this example, we will use <blockquote> inside the paragraph.

  • Program:




    <!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
      
    <head>
        <meta charset="UTF-8">
        <meta name="viewport"
            content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0">
        <title>Document</title>
    </head>
      
    <body>
    <b>GeeksforGeeks</b>
    <blockquote>
        <p>AComputer Science portal for geeks. 
        It contains well written, well thought 
        and well explained computer science and 
        programming articles, quizzes and many more, 
        created by <q>Sandeep Jain</q></p>
    </blockquote>
    </body>
      
    </html>                    
  • Output:

HTML | Tag: The <q> tag is used to provide small quotations to the HTML content, in this case, the browser simply puts a quotation around the content inside the tag. This tag is also known as inline quotation which means it will not break to the next line.
