The Blockquote HTML Tag

The HTML blockquote tag is used to create quotes in block form. This tag has only one attributes which is cite. This attribute is used to specify from which website the quotes is gotten from, thus the Value for the cite attribute is url.

As noted earlier, blockquote HTML tag specify a quote in block form, thus you are not required to use this tag if you want the quote to be inline with the rest of the text/content of the page.

The HTML blockquote tag is supported by all major browsers which are Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, Safari, Mozilla Firefox, and Opera.

When display the blockquote tag, most browser use this CSS setting:
blockquote {
    display: block;
    margin-top: 1em;
    margin-bottom: 1em;
    margin-left: 40px;
    margin-right: 40px;
But of cause, you can override this if you wish by specifying yours.

Like every other HTML tags, the bloquote tag come in pair, that is, the opening and closing tag. So the actual quote is placed in-between the tag.
