Making a Quote in a Weblog Entry

When you quote in your weblog, always use quotation marks: He said, “I don’t type quickly.”

If it is a long quote, use the blockquote tool:

On the weblog, he wrote,

“Although I will not be formally evaluating your weblogs every week, you must still post entries every week. You cannot get credit if you post three weeks worth of entries in one week. You must write a bit each week.”

He also said:

“If you quote someone in an entry, use quotation marks to show the quote; in the case of a long quote, you may use the blockquote function as well”

And notice I used the hyperlink above. Always use a hyperlink when you are quoting or using material available online.
