              <p>A pull quote is a typographical technique in which an excerpt or quote from an article is duplicated within the article using a different formatting style so that it jumps out at the reader.</p>

<p data-pullquote="b">Blatantly copying the excerpt of the pull quote into it’s own element is not the way to go. <b>A pull quote is a purely visual technique, and therefore should not change the structure of the body.</b> Next to that, a structural representation of the excerpt would be seen twice by people using feed readers or services like <a href="http://www.instapaper.com/">Instapaper</a>, as well as be re-read for people who use screen readers. So how can we best author this into our mark-up?</p>

<h3>Our good friend, the data attribute</h3>

<p><span class="caps">HTML5 </span>introduced the ability for authors to create custom non-visible data-attributes. These attributes can contain data that will not affect layout or presentation.</p>

<blockquote><p>Custom data attributes are intended to store custom data private to the page or application, for which there are no more appropriate attributes or elements.</p></blockquote>

<p>By adding a <code>data-pullquote</code> attribute to an element, we attach the text of the pull quote to it, yet do not add visible content.</p>
