Dear Lazyweb,

I would like to display some text in a web-browser that ends up looking like this:

Someone says " The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Victor jagt zwölf Boxkämpfer quer über den Sylter Deich. Cwm fjord bank glyphs vext quiz. Buvez de ce whisky que le patron juge fameux."
Someone else says " The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog. Victor jagt zwölf Boxkämpfer quer über den Sylter Deich. Cwm fjord bank glyphs vext quiz. Buvez de ce whisky que le patron juge fameux."

i.e. the indent on the second line is as far as it had got up to with the quote mark on the first line. I can do this in tables (see the source). I'd like not to. Is there a way of doing this with <div> and CSS? From my researches I can see no way, but I'm not an expert.
