Use <q> tag for inline quotes (and generally encourage more semantic code)
I'd like the WYSIWYG to convert my inline quotation marks into the
<q> tags, and generally encourage better semantic code; such as encouraging use of the

Long live the Q Tag!
I agree. I use blockquote right now, but that's not technically correct, is it?
It is, for block quotes (longer quotes). Inline quotes should utilize the
q tag though.
I rate this idea highly because I agree that better semantic code should be encouraged. I disagree however with the proposed implementation. As long as the browser with the largest marketshare does not render the
q element according to the specification (IE doesn't render the quotation marks itself), manually added quotation marks will have to stay even if you use the
q tag. Sad but true.
This is a GREAT idea.. How can we get wordpress to implement the q tag next to the blockquote button in wordpress editor?
I thought that IE8 has already implemented the q support.
I agree with the premise of encouraging semantic code but not the proposed implementation of the
In English, quotation marks do not always denote a quotation.
Semantic code is the future. I agree.
Yes please! The nice things about
<q> is that you can use CSS to pick which style quotes you want...so that your quotes can fit the language you're writing in automatically.
And yes, IE8 finally does render quotes correctly. (Although Safari/Chrome doesn't do nested quotes properly without a lot of extra CSS.)
-1. As greenshady sais, quotation marks do not always denote a quotation
