You will find out what X and Y are by looking at the context.

What makes you think it does?

Why did you masquerade a reference to the HTML 4.01 specification?

Anyway, the fragment
<!ELEMENT BLOCKQUOTE - - (%block;|SCRIPT)+ -- long quotation -->
there specifies the allowed content of blockquote, in HTML 4.01 Strict. Is
that your problem? It's often a problem, because it means that any text
inside a blockquote element must be wrapped in a block-level container
(other than the blockquote itself, which is block-level _and_ accepts
block-level contents only).

If symptoms recur, please include the URL of your document in your
message, as you should have done in the first place.
