blockquote (HTML element) Description The blockquote element is a mechanism for marking up a block of text quoted from a person or another document or source. It may be just a few lines, or it may contain several paragraphs (which you’d mark up using nested p elements). The W3C recommendation states that web page authors should not type quotation marks in the text when they’re using blockquote—we can leave it to the style sheets to take care of this element of presentation (just as it should be when the q element is used for short, inline quotations). In practice, though, many authors do choose to include quote marks, as browser support for automatically inserting the language-appropriate quotation marks is extremely poor. By default, most browsers’ basic built-in style sheets render blockquote content with left and right indentations, as shown in Figure 1.

It was basically a fixed-width grid that adapted to a couple of then popular screen widths by shedding some of its columns. It also had matching typographic presets to go with it, built with a modular scale based on the golden ratio. The resources it was originally published with are still available on GitHub. Contrary to how most CSS frameworks work, Less Framework simply provided a set of code comments and visual templates, instead of having predefined classes to control the layout with. This is how I still work today and definitely a method I advocate.
HTML 5 Reference It is useful to make a distinction between the vocabulary of an HTML document—the elements and attributes, and their meanings—and the syntax in which it is written. HTML has a defined set of elements and attributes which can be used in a document; each designed for a specific purpose with their own meaning. Consider this set of elements to be analogous to the list of words in a dictionary. This includes elements for headings, paragraphs, lists, tables, links, form controls and many other features. This is the vocabulary of HTML. Similarly, just as natural languages have grammatical rules for how different words can be used, HTML has rules for where and how each element and attribute can be used.

How To Create 3D Text using CSS3 I am very happy to see, CSS3 finally eliminates the use of Photoshop in terms of giving text shadows.

Earlier Text Shadows were announced since the beginning of CSS2 however, the only browser that was supporting this functionality was Safari. If you talk about today’s condition, almost all the browsers except Internet Explorer are running Text Shadows successfully. I agree that we would not be able to use these shadows for clients for next few years because of cross browser compatibility however these features can help you push the boundaries of modern Web Technology today.
