HTML “q” Tag

By Xah Lee. Date: . Last updated: .

There's a “q” tag in HTML, like this:

<q>something</q>

Here's what your browser shows:

something

This tag is in HTML 4 and also HTML 5. It is for short inline quote, such as a sentence. Browsers are supposed to render it with a “curly quotation marks” wrapped around it.

As of 2011-06-29, all major browsers on Windows support it. (Firefox 5, Chrome 12.0.x, IE9 9.0.8112, Safari 5.0.5, Opera 11.1.)

Though, in Chrome and Safari, it uses straight double quotes, not curly quotes.
