A project I am working on displays letters and quotations in smaller type and indented.
To show this I redefined <blockquote> in the CSS as follows:
In addition I have defined a class:
In letters I like to show the salutation and signature with the first letter full cap and the remainder of the name in small caps.
If I leave the "font-size:90%;" in the <blockquote> the class="small" in the signature and elsewhere has no effect. If I remove the "font-size:90%;" from the <blockquote> the signature works fine. It seems that the <blockquote> definition cancels the class="small."
Is this normal (correct operation) or have I done something wrong?
