Georgia Italic should be used to denote a short quotation from BBC Blogs or third party websites. The recommended type sizes are: 16px in a pull-out box where there is one quotation (e.g. Quotation promo to BBC Blogs) and 14px in a module where there is more than one quotation (eg. Twitter feed module).
