Day 14: Blockquote 💬


A blockquote is used to highlight a quote on a page.

The example component is visible below.


It’s because I’m green, isn’t it?

—The Grinch


A few notes about this blockquote component:

  • CSS Variables are used for colors,
  • the :before pseudo-element is used to add and style big quotation marks,
  • the line-height: 0 declaration is used to reduce the size of the quotation marks.

The code:

<blockquote class="advent-quote" cite="https://parade.com/958470/alexandra-hurtado/grinch-quotes/">
<p class="advent-quote__content">It’s because I’m green, isn’t it?</p>
<p class="advent-quote__author">—The Grinch</p>
