That brings up an interesting thought.  Suppose I wanted a thick red line down 
the left of the quote.  Does adding "border: 2px solid red;" to the above 
styles ensure that the border won't break between the <p/> and the <ol/>?  If 
so, then good, we don't need <div/>.  If not, then we need <div/>.

There is a certain amount of cleanliness to using <div/> for quoting too, as 
it means you don't need to mangle the person's original message to create the 
quoted block.
