Semantic Clean Up in Aisle 4!
A couple people have recently asked me why I use a div with a set class to define my pull quotes. They said that a blockquote would be more appropriate.
I went to the XHTML Reference, and according to it, a blockquote defines a long quotation. Seeing that my pull quotes are usually only about a sentence, I felt that a blockquote was not the way to go. Then I spotted the cite tag, which defines a citation, and that sounded pretty close to what I was looking for.
So, I wanted to ask you, the knowledgable audience: what should I use to define my pull quotes? A blockquote, a citation, or should I stick with how I’m doing it now? Thanks!
