I just upgraded to the latest git version of pandoc and note one bit of stylistic breakage. pandoc --smart now renders HTML quotations as elements. Pandoc's dzslides default template.html render as a inline-block element, which leads to some visual breakage.

I never used pandoc sorry. I just know that out display:block on the quotation phrasing elements is in the "Your style" section. Therefore it shouldn't impact any third party project that uses DZSlides since the core part doesn't have influence on those elements.

I'm not sure I'm seeing where you think DZSlides can handle this issue. Don't hesitate to detail your expectations from us.

Nevertheless you're still leading us to a small incorrect usage of q elements.

If I read correctly we should use a blockquote and the display:block would become useless.

@paulrouget What do you think ?

Even so, I imagine people will use that section as a default starting
point and then modify it from there. If they do so, they will then bump
into the unusual styling for <q>.

Please don't define q as a block element.

Yes.

In the meantime, pandoc is removing that declaration for the time being.

I fixed this by removing the css for q in the dzslides template,
and replacing it with the same default we have in the html5 template..

I just modified the code. If everyone agrees on this blockquote vs q issue, we'll merge.

Thx again @reagle ;-)
