Quotations

Quotations may be made inline with the text if they are short, or as block quotes if they are longer. References should always be provided to identify and acknowledge the source of the quotation.

Quotations should be enclosed within a pair of quotation marks (" - ") if being made inline, or placed in an indented block if more than one or two lines.

Superfluous decoration, such as the use of italics as well as quotation marks or block indentation, is not needed, and likley to be removed.

Inline quotations

Short quotations can be included inline with the text of a sentence or paragraph, and should be enclosed in quotation marks, for example, "Quotations may be made inline with the text if they are short",[2] show an inline quotation followed by its reference

Block quotations

Block quotations are displayed using a fixed indent from the left and right margins of the page. The left indent also matched the standard indent provided by by the -> markup which indents a line of text. The indent is set at 40 pixels.

The quotation reference should normally be place at the foot of the quotation, using the -> text indent to align it with the preceding The source can be included inside the >>bquote<< and >><< markup provided the standard \\ markup is used to insert a linebreak before the source identification line.

>>bquote<<
This block of text represent a section of quoted text and should appear indented from both the left and right margins of the page. This may not always be obvious since the right margin of most web test is ragged rather than justified, but the indent always applied and shows up clearly if there is an image included with the text.

The (:linebreaks:) and (:nolinebreaks:) markup is only needed for blocks of text that need to have linebreaks, and can be omitted if not needed.
