Here's how to create a Strong Bad Email blockquote:

[edit] Coding the Blockquote

To create the blockquote, you'll need the <blockquote> tag. To make the blockquote look like a Strong Bad Email, you'll need the class attribute:

<blockquote class="(Your SBemail style)">Your SBemail text</blockquote>

You'll need to know the six different attributes values, the words that go where (Your SBemail style) is, to customize the blockquote:

  • tandy email - Makes the blockquote font, build, and color similar to that of the Tandy 400.
  • compy email - Makes the blockquote font, build, and color similar to that of the Compy 386.
  • lappy email - Makes the blockquote font, build, and color similar to that of the Lappy 486 and Lappier.
  • short tandy email - The same functions as tandy email, but with a fixed height.
  • short compy email - The same functions as compy email, but with a fixed height.
  • short lappy email - The same functions as lappy email, but with a fixed height.
  • The CompĂ© does not use a blockquote format, Instead, the text in question should be put in between {{compeemail}} and {{compeemailend}}.

Note: Hence their names, the short versions of each blockquote should only be used for exceptionally short emails.

The blue subject bar above each Lappy 486 email can be rendered into your blockquote using the <div> tag inside the email:

<blockquote class="(Your SBemail style)">
<div>(Your subject text)</div>
Your SBemail text
</blockquote>
