The following HTML
<h6> elements represent six levels of section headings.
<h1> is the highest section level while
<h6> is the lowest.

Local image, alt text as caption
The following image is located within the Hugo site. Because it has alt text but no title text, the caption is generated by the alt text.
Remote image, specified caption
The following image is loaded from a remote URL. The alt text is the same (for screen readers and in cases when the image doesn't load) but because a separate title is provided, the title is used for the caption:
Image with alt text and no caption
Alt text is always recommended for SEO, accessibility and in cases when images don't load. However, you don't necessarily always want an image to have a caption. In that case, use a title with one space:
The blockquote element represents content that is quoted from another source, optionally with a citation which must be within a
cite element, and optionally with in-line changes such as annotations and abbreviations.
Blockquote without attribution
Tiam, ad mint andaepu dandae nostion secatur sequo quae. Note that you can use Markdown syntax within a blockquote.
