BlockQuotev1.1.10Edit this page
Component used to distinguish quoted text in a document by increasing the size of the quote, giving it an attribution, and adding a border around it. For those interested, there's a slight difference between block and pull quotes:
A block quotation (also known as a long quotation or extract) is a quotation in a written document that is set off from the main text as a paragraph, or block of text, and typically distinguished visually using indentation and a different typeface or smaller size font.
In graphic design, a pull quote (also known as a lift-out pull quote) is a key phrase, quotation, or excerpt that has been pulled from an article and used as a page layout graphic element, serving to entice readers into the article or to highlight a key topic.
The NDS team decided on naming the component
<BlockQuote />, to keep it generic for future use cases.
Subtext under the quote. Generally the name of the person who said the quote.
