I hate to bring this up, but it has always bothered me about Typophile:
Quotations are the backbone of discussion, but two positively mundane HTML elements,
<blockquote>, are disallowed?
Because of this, the poor
<cite> element is used and abused, although it is not the most appropriate markup for quotations.
According to the W3C, "
<cite>" is markup for text which "contains a citation or a reference to other sources." ([[http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/struct/text.html#edef-CITEM|HTML 4.01 Specification § 9.2.1 Phrase elements]])
<cite> is fine, even giving it a little semantic wiggle room, but not allowing
<blockquote> is just plain silly.
Given that this is a forum for discussion, shouldn't the proper markup be allowed?
