This is a quote
These days, I can just type "<blockquote>" as regular text, angle brackets and all. If you're not in HTML mode, it automagically converts the angle brackets to literals.
Trying some style controls in the blockquote tag, hoping to defeat how it shows up in annoyingly large text in replies to blog posts:
'Twas brillig, and the slithy tovesDid gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.
"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"
I've set font-style to normal (overriding the italic), and used ridiculously obvious values for font-size and line-height, just to see them working. Supposedly line-height can be set to normal, and font-size can be set to 100%. I'll try that in a blog post reply.
