Main Page QotD layout ideas[edit]

These are layout ideas for a proposal to include citations with the main page QotD. No action was taken at the time. ~ 8 December 2008

Version 1 - no whitespace
  The wit makes fun of other persons; the satirist makes fun of the world; the humorist makes fun of himself, but in so doing, he identifies himself with people — that is, people everywhere, not for the purpose of taking them apart, but simply revealing their true nature. ~ James Thurber, in a television interview with Edward R. Murrow on TV show Small World, CBS-TV (25 March 1959)

Version 2 - two line breaks, trim redundancy in citation
  The wit makes fun of other persons; the satirist makes fun of the world; the humorist makes fun of himself, but in so doing, he identifies himself with people — that is, people everywhere, not for the purpose of taking them apart, but simply revealing their true nature.
~ James Thurber ~

Version 3 - vertical separation
  The wit makes fun of other persons; the satirist makes fun of the world; the humorist makes fun of himself, but in so doing, he identifies himself with people — that is, people everywhere, not for the purpose of taking them apart, but simply revealing their true nature.
