#24471 closed defect (bug) (fixed)

Twenty Thirteen blockquote undoes italics from original quote

Reported by: johnbierly Owned by: lancewillett
Milestone: 3.6 Priority: low
Severity: normal Version: 3.6
Component: Bundled Theme Keywords: has-patch
Focuses: Cc:


In the attached screen shots, the word "there" in the quote in the bottom line is italicized in the quoted text.

In the shot from the Ryu theme (which italicizes its blockquotes), "there" becomes un-italicized, thus setting it off from the rest of the text as the original author intended.

In the shot from Twenty Thirteen, it's still italic just as all the other words are.

Not sure if this is a bug or just a stylistic thing, and it's a rare case.

(Twenty Twelve does the same thing as Thirteen, actually.)

  • Milestone changed from Awaiting Review to 3.6

We could do something similar to Ryu, with:

blockquote em,
blockquote cite {
  font-style: normal;

Can we limit it to just ems? cite is frequently used for the quote source, which is supposed to stay in italics (it has also some other font styles added to it).

#4 @lancewillett

Sure, could be just em and i.

I don't like the way it looks, though–in Source Sans Bold the italic is 300 weight and looks lighter. The normal font (roman) is 400 weight.

See quote-italic-roman.png screenshot.

Obenland brought up a great point: we could load the 300 roman weight to fix the too-heavy font-weight here.

Also, noting that the 700 italic is also needed in case an author makes something bold and italic (very likely).
