COMMENT: When setting quotations, it is essential to show clearly where the quotation begins and ends, so as to distinguish it from the text proper. Normally, a quotation consisting of a few words will be put in double quotes; a longer quotation (a paragraph or more) should be either indented or set in a smaller size, or both. A quotation from a poem can be set smaller, or even can be set in italic, provided it is not too long.
