Providing Citations for Quotes in FrameMaker

A citation is a reference or footnote to a book, article, or other material that specifies the source from which a quotation was borrowed. A citation contains all the information necessary to identify and locate the work. Using a Citation character format and the Citation marker, you can specify citations for quotes that enable users to go to a Web site that contains additional information about the quote.

Following is an example of the HTML code produced when you specify a citation for a quote.

<blockquote cite="http://shakespeare.mit.edu/lll/full.html"> <p>Remuneration! O! that's the Latin word for three farthings.

--- William Shakespeare (Love's Labor Lost).</p> </blockquote>

 

To provide citations for quotes, your Stationery and template must have the following items configured:

Your output format must also support this feature. For more information about output formats that support this feature, see “Features Available in Each Output Format” on page 8.
