| When quoting sources or using quoting tags, it is also often

| the quoted material or excerpt? And how?

Maybe the print style guide methods are really a better in this case. So
is that inside attribute for Citing good or not?
Using footnotes to quoted material [not the best method for Internet]
Placing the source immediately following such quoted material [possibly
better, in case a document or text is not printed in full context]

And then a Visual user could have access to this information, upon
visually reading or printing the material.
