HI all,

I have grepped the latest data set available (Dec 2012) at
http://webdevdata.org (35,000 of top 50,000 web site home pages)

The results are available:
http://www.html5accessibility.com/HTML5data/cite.html (WARNING! 6mb HTML
file)

*<cite|</cite> = 15452 matches in 465 files. 35823 files searched*

glancing at the results appears to indicate that <cite> persons name
</cite> is common usage.


regards

SteveF
