Providing Citations for Quotes in Word

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 style 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.
