Blockquote Mystery (2 posts)

    This is from the Dot CSS created by Alex. Thank you very much for your work, Alex.
    Anyway, I've tried to make 'blockquote' its own class, but I've had little luck. If you look at the following website:
    http://lame.phatchicks.com/index.php?p=71
    you can see that my block quote for the Letter is just this one long paragraph, when in reality I pasted from another source a letter w/ numerous paragraph. Any idea what I should do?!? Is there a special tag I need? I've tried to remove the Blockquote from the end of the #content, but that messess up formatting for the content, so I just left it and created a universal "blockquote" class. Is ther a special line I'm missing that will allow me to make blocks w/ paragraphs?
    Many Thank yous!

    Blockquote just *is*, meaning that it is not a class or an id.
    blockquote {
    margin-left: 10px;
    padding-left: 0;
    }
    That is your blockquote, and your text is correctly indented it would seem.
    If you paste things into WP, I've found that either carriage returns appear which I was not aware of, or that what I thought was carriage returned is not.
    The bottom of this page has some on blockquote.
