lq
The long quote (<lq>) element indicates content quoted from another source. Use the quote element <q> for short, inline quotations, and long quote <lq> for quotations that are too long for inline use, following normal guidelines for quoting other sources. You can store a URL to the source of the quotation in the href attribute; the href value may point to a DITA topic. For more complex references to the source of a quote, you may use the <longquoteref> element, which was added in DITA 1.2.
Although rendering is left up to implementations, processors generally render <lq> as an indented block.

Attributes
Name
Description
Data Type
Default Value
Required?
href
Provides a reference to a resource. See The href attribute for detailed information on supported values and processing implications.
CDATA
#IMPLIED
No
type
Indicates the location of the source of the quote. Note that this allows some values in addition to those allowed on the type attribute on many other DITA elements. See The type attribute for detailed information on the usual supported values and processing implications. In addition, the following attribute values are allowed (but deprecated) for backward compatibility:
external
the href is to a Web site. This value is deprecated in favor of use of the scope and format attributes.
internal
the href is to a DITA topic. This value is deprecated in favor of use of the scope and format attributes.
When either the scope or format attribute has an explicit setting, a type attribute value of external or internal is ignored.
 
CDATA
#IMPLIED
No
scope
The scope attribute identifies the closeness of the relationship between the current document and the target resource. See The scope attribute for more information on values. In the absence of an explicit specification for the scope attribute, an explicit value of type="external" implies scope="external".
(local | peer | external | -dita-use-​conref-​target)
#IMPLIED
No
format
The format attribute identifies the format of the resource being referenced. See The format attribute for details on supported values. In the absence of an explicit specification for the format attribute, an explicit value of type="internal" implies format="dita".
CDATA
#IMPLIED
No
reftitle
The title of the document or topic being quoted.
CDATA
#IMPLIED
No
