Usage

Required markup

If you simply want to put a blockquote by itself within a custom container, use this code:

<blockquote class="if" cite="https://www.huxley.net/bnw/four.html">
    <p class="if">
        “Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly—they’ll go through anything. You read
        and you’re pierced.”
    </p>
    <footer class="if">—Aldous Huxley, <cite class="if">Brave New World</cite></footer>
</blockquote>

If you want the blockquote to cover the width, with a block, use this:

<div class="if block">
    <div class="if container">
        <blockquote class="if" cite="https://www.huxley.net/bnw/four.html">
            <p class="if">
                “Words can be like X-rays, if you use them properly—they’ll go through anything. You
                read and you’re pierced.”
            </p>
            <footer class="if">—Aldous Huxley, <cite class="if">Brave New World</cite></footer>
        </blockquote>
    </div>
</div>

Accessibility

  • Do not use this component to indent text. Screen readers use the <blockquote> element to:
    • Provide semantic understanding of page content by announcing blockquote as quote
    • Define a sectioning root in HTML5, which means that any <h1> - <h6> element doesn't become part of the document’s outline
  • To make the blockquote content accessible, use the <cite> attribute with a valid URL

This component has compliance with WCAG guidelines by:

  • Adding a <cite> element to refer to the source of the quote
