"The blockquote element represents a section that is quoted from another
source."

http://www.w3.org/html/wg/drafts/html/master/grouping-content.html#the-blockquote-element

modify blockquote definition to allow citations to be marked up inside the
element using <footer>:

<blockquote>
<p>The <code><span class="pln">blockquote</span></code> element represents a
section that is quoted from another source.</p>
<footer>&mdash; <cite><a title="4.5 Grouping content &mdash; HTML5"
href="http://dev.w3.org/html5/spec/grouping-content.html#the-blockquote-element">W3C
HTML5 specification</a></cite></footer>
</blockquote>
