A quotation set at the start of the work or a section that establishes the theme or sets the mood.


Example 1 — Epigraph
<blockquote role="doc-epigraph">
   <p>I always get to where I'm going 
         by walking away from where I have been.</p>
   <footer>—Winnie the Pooh</footer>

Relation to ARIA

doc-epigraph inherits its semantics from the a section role (i.e., it represents a container of related content, but is not a landmark).


doc-epigraph is typically used on blockquote and section elements.

For a simplified list of all the elements the role is allowed on, refer to the mapping table in the EPUB Type to ARIA Role Authoring Guide. For the official list of allowed elements, refer to ARIA in HTML.
