Re: quotes and the <blockquote> element

I usually use the <cite> element for book and periodical titles. At least, I
think that's what it's for...

Here's another one that is almost silly: It's accepted to show the titles of
periodicals and books in italics. But if we follow that, should <em></em> be
used to create those italics online? And should "Emphasis" be used as the
style in Word? Or should we develop a different tag and style that gives the
same appearance but says "This is the title of a reference work"? (Perhaps
"we" have and I missed it.)
