IE just ignores <blockquote> as an argument to formatBlock, same as if
you pass <quasit> or something.  That matches my current spec, but
doesn't match any non-IE browser.  Gecko and Presto both try to wrap
existing elements in some fashion, which means formatBlock to
<blockquote> behaves differently from formatBlock to anything else.
