Purposelong quoted passage
DescriptionThis element encloses text which is intended to be taken from another source--a long quotation. Note that browsers will not automatically put in quotation marks around the quoted test. Some browsers don't indent quoted text very much; some developers put quotes around the text to make sure the quotation is properly indicated.
