How To Style Up BlockQuote With Extra CSS For BlogSpot?

What Is A BlockQuote?

In HTML and XHTML, the blockquote element defines “a section [within a document] that is quoted from another source”.The syntax is <blockquote><p>blockquoted text goes here</p></blockquote>.
The blockquote element is used to indicate the quotation of a large section of text from another source. Using the default HTML styling of most web browsers, it will indent the right and left margins both on the display and in printed form, but this may be overridden by Cascading Style Sheets (CSS)
The non-semantic use of the blockquote element purely to indent text is deprecated by the W3C (World Wide Web Consortium) in the current (1999) HTML 4.01 Specification,which is also the basis for XHTML 1.0. The preferred approach is the use of CSS.

Now officially if you are using simple <blockquote>, then it will move your text to middle with a huge padding, but if you will add some extra CSS to it, then you can change the color for the blockquotes, increasing or decreasing the size for the same and changing the background color. It’s pretty self explanatory. Just play with the values defined for color/font-size attributes in the CSS mentioned above and you’ll be able to understand the same.
