I love blockquotes
. I find them so useful for pulling out blocks of text
and creating interesting features within article content. But they're so much better when you style them with fancy styles
. While it's possible to use generated content CSS
to add the quotes to the front and back, this isn't reliable - IE doesn't like content inside of CSS. But this site
shows how to create fancy blockquotes with visual quote marks using a CSS 3 property last-child
. They also show you how to do it using content, but I don't recommend that if your site has a lot of IE visitors.
