HTML <q> for Short Quotations

The HTML <q> element defines a short quotation. Browsers usually insert quotation marks around the <q> element.


 <p>This Example: <q>This is the quoted text.</q></p> 

HTML <blockquote> for Quotations

The HTML <blockquote> element defines a section that is quoted from another source. Browsers usually indent <blockquote> elements.


<p><blockquote>This is a quoted text block, so you could use it to quote block text</blockquote></p>

HTML <abbr> for Abbreviations

The HTML <abbr> element defines an abbreviation or an acronym.

Also, Marking abbreviations can give useful information to browsers, translation systems and search-engines.


  <p>The <abbr title="World Wide Web">WWW</abbr> is the abbreviation for world Wide Web</p>  

HTML <address> for Contact Information

The HTML <address> element defines contact information (author/owner) of a document or an article. The <address> element is usually displayed in italic. Most browsers will add a line break before and after the element.

HTML <bdo> for Bi-Directional Override

The HTML <bdo> element defines bi-directional override. T

Therefore the <bdo> element is used to override the current text direction.

For Example:

 <bdo dir="rtl">This text will be written from right to left</bdo>

Note: The previous code effect will happen because of the <bdo> tag. Otherwise if the dir attribute is in normal paragraph it will not show the same result.
