We use the
blockquote element in an HTML document while citing content that belongs to another source. It changes the look of the text from the general format to emphasize and distinguish it.
blockquote element must be inside tags(
<>, </>): the opening
<blockquote> tag and the closing (
<cite> attribute is also included inside the
<blockquote> tag to specify the source link of the content.
We typically use the
blockquote element when writing a blog, or in specific websites that require proofs and citations.
<cite>attribute is intended to point to information explaining the context or the reference for the quote.
