Home » CSS » PullQuotes using CSS

by 2 comments

I looked at a lot of different ways to display quotes and pullquotes and even though the javascript solutions are very nice, esp. the 456bereastreet.com solution, I decided to just use CSS (Keep It Simple Stupid).


Heres what it looks like:

CSS, no javascript pullquote not blockquote I discovered the "q" tag and tried it out, once it validated as <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd"> Yes thats XHTML 1.0 Strict. I also checked it with Firefox 1.0*-2.0* and IE 6.0.2*-the new IE 7.0. It also renders perfectly in Opera, Mozilla, and Netscape. Once I learned all that I was completely sold!

Example XHTML:

<q>I can go to bat for them and make it a win-win-win </q> <p><strong>"I put a renewal plan togethe</strong>r last year for one of my clients</p> <q class="q2">our clients are the ones who really reap the greatest benefits!</q> <p><strong>"I have to be sure that I can</strong> get all of the ..sometimes I can go to bat for them and make it a win-win-win etween!"</p>

Example CSS:

q {float:left; width:18em; display:block; margin:0.25em 0.75em 0.25em 1em; padding:0.5em; border:3px double #CCC; border-width:3px 0; color:#333; background-color:#f0f0f0; text-align:center; font:italic 1.3em/1.3 Georgia;} q.q2 {float:left; width:9em; display:block; margin:0.25em 0.75em 0.25em 1em; padding:0.5em; border:3px double #CCC; border-width:3px 0; color:#333; background-color:#f0f0f0; text-align:center; font:italic 1.3em/1.3 Georgia;}

Hacking and Hackers

The use of "hacker" to mean "security breaker" is a confusion on the part of the mass media. We hackers refuse to recognize that meaning, and continue using the word to mean someone who loves to program, someone who enjoys playful cleverness, or the combination of the two.
