q
A quotation element (<q>) indicates content quoted from another source. This element is used for short quotes which are displayed inline. Use the long quote element (<lq>) for quotations that should be set off from the surrounding text.
Authors should not add quote punctuation manually when using the <q> element. Processors that render the <q> element should add appropriate styling, such as locale-specific quotation marks.
