HTML q Tag

The information on this page is based on HTML version 4.01 (which is the current version of HTML). The next version, HTML 5, is currently being written. Here's a list of HTML 5 tags.

The HTML <q> tag is used for indicating short quotations (i.e. quotations that needs to display within a non-quoted paragraph).

Browsers generally surround <q> text with quotation marks. If your quotation spans multiple lines, you should use the HTML <blockquote> tag. Most browsers surround blockquote text as indented text.

Note: At the time of writing, browser support for the <q> tag was limited.


And then she said <q>like... whatever!</q>
