Oh, I was under the impression the standard forbad using <cite> for authors, but it seems that I was wrong, and I can. so problem solved, and more exactly, eschewed.
I didn’t know about the trimming either.
Yeah I used to that first but that makes the code useless complicated. If anything I would put cite INSIDE blockquote. I personally do not see why on the semantic element for the source of the quotation should be treated any differently as the one for the author. The authorities mentioned in the link do not agree with one another, so at is said, it’s up to the webmaster. Your interpretation, is only one among two, so I’ll stick with the one I vibe with
The cite attribute is always correct, it’s the most important.
That would be incorrect. The html spec is very clear:
Attribution for the quotation, if any, must be placed outside the blockquote element.
It’s different information. The cite element has very clear, docuemented, uses. If you want to use the wrong html that is up to you, html is quite forgiving in that respect. It would clearly be incorrect though.
It isn’t though is it? It’s literally the html spec, not my interpretation. Not sure what the second interpretation you refer to is.
Not sure what you mean here. You don’t seem to be using the cite attribute.
How dare you prove me wrong ?!
Okay what the guy wrote is ßhîþ, his quote that supposedly allows author is not the page he links to. Sorry. Then I’ll use <p>author <p>in <cite>source</cite></p> and call it a day.
