EAD Tag Library for Version 1.0

EAD Elements: <blockquote> Block Quote


A formatting element that designates an extended quotation. The quotation is set off from the text by spacing or other typographic distinction.

Use the Emphasis <emph> element, not <blockquote>, to tag words that are set off with quotations for emphasis or as a small quoted phrase that occurs, "as these words do," in the line of text.

The <emph> element makes it possible to change the rendering of a phrase by changing the attribute value rather than re-tagging the text, e.g., when the rendering might be changed from surrounding quotation marks to bold, italics, or another display technique. Quotation marks may also be part of the text of an element, when the need for alternative renderings is not anticipated.
