<q> ... </q>

The <q> tag takes the selected block of text and displays it as a quote which is enclosed by a pair of double quotes. Unlike the blockquote tag, the q quote is not preceded or followed by paragraph breaks. So the quote remains inline. You may still need to use other HTML tags to effect the textual display and appearance that you desire.

Since this tag is poorly supported, you should simply use quotation marks.
It is recommended that you use the blockquote tag for long citations and the cite tag for short citations.
The closing tag is mandatory.
