You might have noticed that — in a fit of Spring zeal — I've restyled blockquotes (again). While I liked the previous style with graphical quote marks, it was a bit greedy on space and also didn't scale well. If you have a short quote, the size of the quote graphics is out of proportion to the height of the text, and rather overpowers it.
I think that the new style is distinctive, but a little more subtle. Let me know what you think.
