Use <q> tag for inline quotes (and generally encourage more semantic code)
@danielvulrich haha, I think they might be talking about a normal quotation mark which appears when you type and one that formatted as a text symbol/entities.
I run into that issue when copying and pasting mysql queries from certain blogs. I only find out they are text entities when phpmyadmin tells me the query wont run.
Count me in on wanting wider use of semantic markup but not automatic markup in the case of <q> specifically.
Yes, that's helpful... thanks
<q> ≠ " in all cases... there is still a place for Blockquotes... I think the usability issue here is that people want more accessible quick buttons to semantic code writers in the WP writer. But it does not mean that they are going to write correct semantic markup. There is still a question on how a Theme implements semantic code... My theme has some nice features for
<blockquote>. I think there is still a place for both
<q>. But markup is like grammar; and everyone has grammar problems.
Yes i have found the <q> to be useful in most instances but when copying and pasting it is a right hassle. But sometimes no problem i think its just some blogs are using different code maybe ?
This type of code <q> is using is takes very long time in the copyrights work and IT is harder
Good idea, ok for its implementation for me.
But sometimes no problem i think its just some blogs are using different code maybe ?
Maybe very little users, but I really use different code, its interesting for me.
Just stumbled across this post and thought I should mention I wrote a plugin to do this:
I totally agree with this idea.
Also, as a side note, I really don't get some users's older comments regarding the
q tag and its lack of support in IE. Microsoft has been behind on a lot of these things since way before 2005.
If web development had to wait for IE to catch up and get its act straight, we would spend our lives waiting, now, wouldn't we? :-)
