           Summary: Error in HTML code example for the blockquote element
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Platform: Macintosh
        OS/Version: MacOS X
            Status: NEW

The following example html code contains an error:

 <blockquote>
  <p>The truth may be puzzling. It may take some work to grapple with.
  It may be counterintuitive. It may contradict deeply held
  prejudices. It may not be consonant with what we desperately want to
  be true. But our preferences do not determine what's true. We have a
  method, and that method helps us to reach not absolute truth, only
  asymptotic approaches to the truth — never there, just closer
  and closer, always finding vast new oceans of undiscovered
  possibilities. Cleverly designed experiments are the key.</p>
 </blockquote>

 the <cite>Skeptical Enquirer</cite> Volume 19, Issue 1 (January-February
 1995)</cite></figcaption>

The final </cite> tag is redundant as far as I can tell.
