Preformatted Text

Typographically, preformatted text is not the same thing as code. Sometimes, a faithful execution of the text requires preformatted text that may not have anything to do with code. Most browsers use Courier and that’s a good default – with one slight adjustment, Courier 10 Pitch over regular Courier for Linux users. For example:

“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
    The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
    The frumious Bandersnatch!”


Code can be presented inline, like <?php bloginfo('stylesheet_url'); ?>, or within a <pre> block. Because we have more specific typographic needs for code, we’ll specify Consolas and Monaco ahead of the browser-defined monospace font.

#container { float: left; margin: 0 -240px 0 0; width: 100%; }


Let’s keep it simple. Italics are good to help set it off from the body text (and italic Georgia is lovely at this size). Be sure to style the citation.

Good afternoon, gentlemen. I am a HAL 9000 computer. I became operational at the H.A.L. plant in Urbana, Illinois on the 12th of January 1992. My instructor was Mr. Langley, and he taught me to sing a song. If you’d like to hear it I can sing it for you.

Pull Quotes

Here you can see some of the pull styles Duster has to offer, applied to blockquotes. You can also use them on images to break them out from the post content into one of the margins on the single post and page view.

Testing a blockquote on the right

Pretty cool, huh? They can help add some visual interest to text post and — if you use them wisely — some sophistication to your blog post. It’s pretty simple to use them too if you’re comfortable switching over to the HTML view in the Post and Page Editor. Here’s how to achieve pull quotes:

<blockquote class="pull alignright">Your quote here</blockquote>

You can change “alignright” to “alignleft” if you want, or even use only the “pull” class like so.

Testing a long long long blockquote with pull class. It is quite long.

And here’s a bit of trailing text.

Readability Test

“I’m sure I’m not Ada,” she said, “for her hair goes in such long ringlets, and mine doesn’t go in ringlets at all; and I’m sure I can’t be Mabel, for I know all sorts of things, and she, oh! she knows such a very little! Besides, SHE’S she, and I’m I, and—oh dear, how puzzling it all is! I’ll try if I know all the things I used to know. Let me see: four times five is twelve, and four times six is thirteen, and four times seven is—oh dear! I shall never get to twenty at that rate! However, the Multiplication Table doesn’t signify: let’s try Geography. London is the capital of Paris, and Paris is the capital of Rome, and Rome—no, THAT’S all wrong, I’m certain! I must have been changed for Mabel! I’ll try and say ‘How doth the little—'” and she crossed her hands on her lap as if she were saying lessons, and began to repeat it, but her voice sounded hoarse and strange, and the words did not come the same as they used to do:

“How doth the little crocodile
Improve his shining tail,
And pour the waters of the Nile
On every golden scale!

“How cheerfully he seems to grin,
How neatly spread his claws,

And welcome little fishes in
With gently smiling jaws!”

“I’m sure those are not the right words,” said poor Alice, and her eyes filled with tears again as she went on, “I must be Mabel after all, and I shall have to go and live in that poky little house, and have next to no toys to play with, and oh! ever so many lessons to learn! No, I’ve made up my mind about it; if I’m Mabel, I’ll stay down here! It’ll be no use their putting their heads down and saying ‘Come up again, dear!’ I shall only look up and say ‘Who am I then? Tell me that first, and then, if I like being that person, I’ll come up: if not, I’ll stay down here till I’m somebody else’—but, oh dear!” cried Alice, with a sudden burst of tears, “I do wish they WOULD put their heads down! I am so VERY tired of being all alone here!”
