Only the Slashdot frontpage will be accessible tonight between 23:00 and 23:15 EDT while maintenance is occurring.

"... Once maintenance is complete, the Slashdot frontpage will no longer be accessible."

(Interesting. When I preview this, the blockquote tags are ignored. Oh well, I'll add an i tag so it blockquotes anyway)

Yeah, looks like that blockquoting <i> tag thing got broken, that must be what they're shutting everything down to fix.

Wow, they're shutting down the site to fix a tag? Sure makes sense to me. Fix the broken moderation system? Not a fucking chance in hell. Fix a tag that not that many people use? All over it!

No no.. I wasn't blockquoting. I just wanted italics There was a time when the i tag did nothing at all... But it's back!

On certain screens of slashdot, the i tag was styled to do the same thing

the blockquote tag

does. It lead to

really

odd looking sentences, like

this

one. It certainly adds emphasis to those words, though.

Did you use the <i> or <blockquote>?

Testing:

blockquote

Italic

There's also

<quote>

which acts differently from

<blockquote>.

To make it easy on those of us with tired eyes, please use

<quote>.

Thanks in advance

Kinda defeats the purpose, no? (1)
