If I'm quoting code? No. Although it might be useful to have a block
element for holding code. Currently I use a <pre> with a <code> inside
it. Although I would probably still use an inline code element inside
that as sometimes I have several nested <code> (e.g. with classes
"xml", "tag", "attribute", "value", etc) since that provides an
elegent way to attach syntax highlighting in a stylesheet).

A block that is quoted, or a quoted block. Makes little different
really. I'd stick to blockquote to avoid needless (and confusing)
differences with HTML 4 element names.
