Comment:
It says "Content inside a blockquote must be quoted from another source,"
however, http://html5doctor.com/blockquote-q-cite/ has an example which puts a
<footer> inside <blockquote> to show the source of a quote. Is that right? If
so, I would like this section to clarify that and to have some markup example
for that.
