This example demonstrates the use of the
<blockquote> element to quote a passage from RFC 1149, A Standard for the Transmission of IP Datagrams on Avian Carriers.
Avian carriers can provide high delay, low throughput, and low altitude
service. The connection topology is limited to a single point-to-point path
for each carrier, used with standard carriers, but many carriers can be used
without significant interference with each other, outside early spring. This
is because of the 3D ether space available to the carriers, in contrast to
the 1D ether used by IEEE802.3. The carriers have an intrinsic collision
avoidance system, which increases availability.
