Some people have been using tables to format biblical quotations, such as Law of God vs Law of Christ:

John 7:16-17
16Jesus answered them and said, "My doctrine is not Mine, but His who sent Me. 17If anyone wills to do His will, he shall know concerning the doctrine, whether it is from God or whether I speak on My own authority.
(Holy Bible: New King James Version. Nashville, Tennessee: Thomas Nelson Publishers, 1982.)

When it comes to biblical quotations, I personally like this format better than the standard ">" quotation formatting.

Should this become a new standard, or should it be discouraged, or what?

    To be honest, I don't particularly like it. I'd say neither encouraged nor discouraged.

    I like it, but I don't have any strong feelings either. It's hard enough getting new users to understand the site guidelines around scope, expected behaviour etc. I don't think its worth the effort of encouraging or discouraging any particular formatting for questions. If people like it enough then they'll probably adopt it themselves.

    I agree with both the Moderators above. The usual format is simple and easy to use. I have just looked at the other and it is far too complicated to expect new users (some of whom are not - like myself - overly computer literate) to master and use it instantly.
