This post is a test of my new CSS pseudo elements. I have added special quotes for English, Francais and German (only seems to work in Gecko, hmm). I have also added a neat hack to show the
cite attribute right after a
blockquote, to show the source of that
blockquote, as well as language markers for the given
lang attribute. Anyway, this post is just to test them out. Note that this will not work in IE, so go get FireFox.
This is a quote in
English, using normal quotes and since the main language of this site is english there is no extra language identifier.
Se c’est un quote en
Francais, et i’ll y a un marker pour language. Je ne parler pas francais.
Vis is ze quote en
German, but I von’t speken ze German, but anyvay, vere is an extra language marker.
This is a test blockquote and has a cite attribute of http://mattread.com/ and a lang attribute of en. You will notice the nice Source thing at the bottom of this blockquote, and the [en] language marker, which is done entirely in CSS. Pretty cool isn’t it?
Now lets test a paragraph in French,
with a quote in french and
a quote in english. Notice the language marker before this paragraph. Ya ya, I know this isn’t French but like I said earlier, I don’t speak French very well. Again, all CSS.
