Message-ID: <CA+ri+VkSgk6ZvXuvbYP=vmGqDzUTJf7Mh9dz=o7pmiR0PHPW+Q@mail.gmail.com>
To: HTMLWG WG <public-html@w3.org>
some details:

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

old:
http://www.w3.org/TR/html51/grouping-content.html#the-blockquote-element

change based on:

   - https://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/show_bug.cgi?id=22996 (note: am not
   closing bug as this discussion has some time to run yet)
   - http://www.brucelawson.co.uk/2013/on-citing-quotations-again/
   - http://oli.jp/2011/blockquote/
   - http://html5doctor.com/blockquote-q-cite/
   - http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/public-html/2013Aug/0100.html and
   related

question:

Is the change backwards compatible? i.e. does it break anything?
data appears to show that metadata about a quote inside blockquote element
is common

> ”inside blockquote” was used 57% of the time, while
> “outside blockquote” was used 43% of the time.
