The annoying <blockquote> bug

    Hi there,

    first, thanks a lot for Worpress!

    The first thing I checked after installing was the editor, and this ist what I found: A button named "indent list/blockquote".

    ***BIG SIGH***

    Sorry folks, but
    BLOCKQUOTE is, as the name says, meant for QUOTATIONS! NOT for indentions.

    If an editor wants to have his layout to be indent a few steps, he gets - logically! - an quote within a quot within a quote...

    By the way! Who says blockquote indents text?? This simply relies on most browser's standard setting, which of course can be changed by CSS!

    What if:
    blockquote
    {
    margin-left: 0;
    /* some other stuff to layout quotations*/
    }

    ???

    WP is from the 21st Century, isn't it? So it should not behave like Netscape Composer in 1996!

    Is there a patch available for this issue?

    Thanks a lot!!

    Best

    Arnd

    Indenting is now done with padding.
