I am editing an ebook, trying to mimic the original format of its text. In the book, footnotes are written in a smaller font with respect to normal text, and so are quotations; this means that a quotation inside a footnote is even smaller.
I used an inline style
which works well for footnote and quotations. (Actually, the directive is incorporated in their style) It work also for quotations inside footnotes, but in this case the size of the text is really small. I wouldn't want to dictate a font size; but I would like to have something like "use a font 1 pt smaller than the inherited one". Is it possible?
