For more than once, in my wiki site, using WikiMedia, I've searched how to
render the <q></q> tags with their attribute. But I've never found. And the Help
does not mention the (in)existence of that tags. So I ask you to include it in a
further version, if it is possible. According to the (X)HTML specs, this tag is
an inline tag, and if it is included, I'd like it to be considered as well, with
its 'cite' attribute. Otherwise, I'd use the <blockquote></blockquote> tags
(used in WikiMedia thanks to the ": " mark).
Reassigning to enhancement severity as this is a feature request.
Unfortunately the q tag has mixed support in browsers, and at this time it's better
to just type quotation marks.
I'm going to go ahead and WONTFIX this. <q> is being dropped in XHTML 2.0, and browser support
is at best inconsistent for older versions of HTML.
The <q> element are correctly supported by all recent browsers now. Moreover, it's part of HTML 4, XHTML 1 and future HTML 5 standard. Is it possible to include them in a further version?

In general, references (URLs, specs) are highly welcome for statements.
According to https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML/Element/q :
HTML5 Candidate Recommendation
HTML 4.01 Spec Recommendation
Also see the <q> discussion in bug 671
