Oh! Thank you, Lou. This changes everything, of course.
I just took the <quote> definition at its face value:
"<quote> (quotation) contains a phrase or passage attributed by the
narrator or author to some agency external to the text"
As each definition belongs in the same text as the surrounding
paragraphs, I would have thought <quote> had to be ruled out. Glad to
know the solution was as easy as that!
Thank you again!
