Back-Handed Compliment

Ann Althouse is a law professor at the University of Wisconsin. Here is one of her posts from today, in full:

God bless the dork . . .

Overheard on State Street today:

“I said I would never go back to high school. But . . . I’m a dork. Every time, after Latin class, I’m so happy. And I just think, I want to feel like that all the time. I want to teach high school Latin.”

(That last paragraph should be doubly indented, with no quotation marks, but stupid WordPress refuses to accept nested blockquotes.)

    There are various tricks for getting around this. One is to use a definition list and the indentation for definition text:

    unindented
    <dl><dd>
    once indented
    <blockquote>
    twice indented
    </blockquote>
    </dd></dl>

    I don’t use WordPress so I don’t know, but it may be worth an experiment.
