New HTML Format for Quotations

Do you like my new quotation format? It looks like this:
"A Reputation Model of Quality in North-South Trade." Countries have different comparative advantages in quality. These might be due to technological differences, or to reputation differences of the sort described in Klein \& Leffler (1981). Reputation differences are particularly interesting, since good reputations are a form of ``social capital'' that is amenable to modelling. They can explain why firms in these industries like to export even if the foreign price is no higher than the domestic one, and why governments would like to have large ``high-value'' sectors. ( http://www.rasmusen.org/papers/trade-rasmusen.pdf).
I got the commands from my old Uni High classmate Anton Sherwood, whose blog is ... muttered the ogre. Here's the command, adapted for Movable Type, where it goes into the Main Index template and the Individual Archive template, right at the start of each file:

<style> BLOCKQUOTE {border-left: 5px solid #bdc;
margin-left: 1.5em;
padding-left: 5px;} </style>
