Missing style for <quote>?

At the bottom of the comment input form, <quote> is mentioned as an allowed tag. Is it just my setup, or does it not work? I don't seem to see quotation marks nor a change of appearance of the enclosing text. Here's an example: The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog.

Behavior of the "quote" tag

The tag is present in your message, but most browsers don't render it; it's a purely semantic tag, despite the documentation in HTML 4.0.

Supplying quotation marks turned out to be a bad idea, because different languages have different conventions for quotation marks, often more than one convention per language.

OT: quote tags

I would have thought that language specific behaviour was precisely why <q> tags were a good idea:

Visual user agents must ensure that the content of the Q element is rendered with delimiting quotation marks. Authors should not put quotation marks at the beginning and end of the content of a Q element.

User agents should render quotation marks in a language-sensitive manner (see the lang attribute). Many languages adopt different quotation styles for outer and inner (nested) quotations, which should be respected by user-agents.

Sadly, my browser doesn't do anything with the cite attribute in the above blockquote, and LtU doesn't seem to allow q elements.

No such tag

HTML 4 defines <blockquote> and <q>, but not <quote>.
