Blockquote citations

20th December 2002

Inspired by Adrian Holovaty, I spent an hour this morning getting dirty with the DOM in an effort to replicate his funky CSS blockquote citations effect but with links that you can actually click on. The resulting code is now active on this weblog—check the javascript out here.

It turns out Paul Hammond had exactly the same idea—his implementation can be found here.
