Ideas

Use <q> tag for inline quotes (and generally encourage more semantic code)

    We also can't just ignore IE, since a large number of people still use it. So ... yes, we do have to wait in a lot of places for IE to grow up.

    Are you absolutely, 100% convinced that there is no way that we could? Petty please? With sugar on top?
    Just kidding: I hate, no no, "hate" is not strong enough, I loathe IE and their makers.
    There should be a special place in Hell reserved for them.
    There, I said it, ;-)

    I don't disagree with that feeling.

  4. Hi,
    We can also use a regex to convert double quotes "citation" into <q>citation</q> and draw nice quotes top left and bottom right using css

    It's nice to read your advice, but I do not use the tag < q >, I'm used to using < em >, I think that there is still a code semantic ordered. I use < em > because whenever IE disappoints me most, besides many things as being slow, not able to read attributes like "float: left/right" or other tags.
    I think we can use resources like < em > tag for citation in quotes, remains a semantic code tidy and saves the moment.

    I always use css, I just saw some one create a pluggin "in line quote tag", I liked that idea and works really good.

    Hasn't IE already implemented the <q> support?

    I think its still early for full semantic markup because of IE.

    We are talking about implementing <q> support in WordPress, not in browsers such as IE, or Chrome etc, once implemented in WordPress, the browsers will follow because of the enormous usage of WordPress in web market.
