Intriguing. A few points:

1. About your CSS, neither border nor text-decoration remove the 
quotation punctuation added to q by browsers that attempt to follow the 
HTML specification for q. You'd want to use the quotes property:


Since q is an inline element and blockquote is block, presumably 
sometimes you'd want to use blockquote instead.

2. Your examples should include proper alt text.

3. I'd suggest using class="videothumbnail" instead of class="video", 
which could mean all sorts of things.
