    how can you change the color of a quote ? When I post something I want the quoted text to be different and not just italic....perhaps even a box around it. How can I do this in the CSS file ? I tried it on .blockquote but it does it to more than just the quote area.

    Thanks a ton !

    you will see the quoted area is only italic...I want to change the color of the quoted stuff and / or have a shaded box around it or even a different background. Basiclly so it stands out more !

    the link doesn't work, but you're going to want to learn CSS (especially if you bill yourself as a webdesigner).

    check out http://www.w3.org and http://www.alistapart.com for starters

    If you add the following to your style.css file:
    blockquote p {
    color:red;
    }

    That should give you an idea of how to make changes...

    I am a flash builder....I generally do not use any HTML as most of the sites I build do not need / use any type of database. But yes, now that I am starting a blog I do wish to learn more CSS.

    Thank Yosemite, I will try that. The last time I changed the .blockquote and added a color, it changed more than just the quote...but I will try it again with the code you provided.

    The link does work...I just forgot the www part. But you should know this especiall as a web browser !
