I decided that I wanted to be one of the cool kids that could do daringfireball.net style quick pull quote + commentary posts.

Problem: My custom theme's CSS just left pull quotes looking like plain indented text… blah, blargh, barf.

I don't pretend to be a designer today, but I want things I make to minimize eye-bleeding whenever possible.

I gave myself a timebox of 15 minutes to find a workable solution and here are the fruits of that labor:

Solution:

blockquote {
	margin-top: 25px;
	margin-bottom: 25px;
	margin-left: 50px;
	padding-left: 15px;
	border-left: 3px solid #ccc;
}

Example:

Things can be really fun, if you let them be.
