BackgroundColors for Quotes in HTML

I've just learned a new html command useful for weblogs from JAYNE'S ONLINE SANITY SAVER: the "background-color" command. This is nice for putting a shadecolor in the background of indented material. Here's the command, with @-signs replacing the less-than and greater-than signs in the HTML:

@[email protected]   BLOCKQUOTE {background-color: cornsilk}  @/[email protected]

The command generates this kind of output when used with @[email protected] @[email protected] :

Here is an example of indented material. I'll have to make it long enough to take up more than one line, so I'll type a bit more.

I've not yet figured out how to put a box around the quote, though. The "border" command doesn't seem to work.
