Vector should mark language-neutral blockquotes
Open, MediumPublic


Follow-up from T114885 Vector should follow and mark blockquotes similar to mobile.
MinervaNeue provides in blockquotes.less following LESS rule:

blockquote {
	position: relative;
	border-left: 3px solid @colorGray12;
	padding: 1em @blockquotePaddingRight 1em @blockquotePaddingLeft;
	font-family: @fontFamilyHeading;
	font-size: 1.1em;
	overflow: hidden;

Vector should provide the same styles for blockquote.

Original designs by @Nirzar based on our discussion:

Latin will use serif + italics. this can be done with css selector for latin scripts

on tablets

Non latin will use regular type with larger font size

Another stylistic variation

NOTE: the text in mockup is lorem ipsum for non latin scripts.

@Volker_E: As a newcomer and student, am I supposed to provide a patch for ?
Any further pointers / docs what I'd be supposed to do or skills I need? To see how "mobile" does it, would I have to check MinervaNeue code or such?

@Aklapper Thanks for the question, yes:
A patch for Vector skin should be provided best-possibly into components/common.less under .mw-body-content {}. I've also updated the task description accordingly to point to the corresponding MinervaNeue piece of code.
