The q element includes content quoted from another source. This element is used for short quotes that are displayed inline. Use the long quote element (<lq>) for quotations that should be set off from the surrounding text or that contain multiple paragraphs.
Authors should not add quote punctuation manually when using the q element. Processors that render the q element SHOULD add appropriate styling, such as locale-specific quotation marks.
See appendix for information about this element in OASIS document type shells.
