This Dreamweaver video tutorial shows you how to make create an Xhtml blockquote and style them with background blockquote images of speech marks to create a great typographical blockquote element.
The blockquote in html is easy to create. The method used in this Dreamweaver video tutorial uses a simple html blockquote tag with a paragraph tag placed inside of it. The quote marks are attached using CSS. The opening blockquote image or quote mark is attached to the paragraph tag as a background image. The closing quote mark is attached to the blockquote element itself as a background blockquote image also.
The blockquote CSS used when styling blockquotes attaches padding to the paragraph tag and is used to nudge the paragraph text of the html blockquote into position while creating room for the block quote background images too.
Styling CSS quote marks is easy although it can be tricky to position the closing quote marks. If you follow this Dreamweaver video tutorial you will learn how to cope with different sized quote marks or background images.
