XHTML Tutorial - Nested "blockquote" Elements
(Continued from previous topic...)
Can "blockquote" Elements Be Nested?
Yes. Blockquote elements can be directly nested.
This allows you to include one quote inside another quote.
Below is a good example of nested blockquote elements:
<?xml version="1.0" ?>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN"
<title>Nested BLOCKQUOTE Elements</title>
<p>William Shakespeare was an English poet and playwright
widely regarded as the greatest writer of the English
language. One of his best-known and most quoted plays is:</p>
<p>Hamlet - The revenge of Prince Hamlet,
whose father, the late King of Denmark, victor over
the Polish army, died suddenly while Hamlet was away
from home at Wittenberg University. The most famous
quote of the play:</p>
"To be or not to be, that is the question."
If you save the above document as nest_quotes.html, and view it with

work nicely giving double extra margins to the inner blockquote
