      I guess what Kim says is what I said earlier.
      Non english speakers do not know about the word "pullquote" to begin with so
      the difference between the two terms is irrelevant to them.
      "pullquote" belongs to the english language while "blockquote" belongs to
      the HTM language. All web designers share the knowledge of the latter but
      not of the former.
