Blogger tutorial based site specially those who share codes in their Blog then must use blockquote. Generally main feature of blockquote is displaying the widget code within tag. We use different stylish blockquote in our site but often user has to select the whole code block top to bottom for copying. If the code is larger, then it will make little trouble for user. Because by using cursor sometimes mouse pointer become deselected.  So the solution is to one click text selection from blockquote by using mouse pointer. After that we have to use copy option for further use of code. But some users may feel irritating. Though this is very simple widget but very useful.
