Well, it's nice to see we (including myself) are all really paying attention
to the spec :-) !!!

------------------------------
From W3C HTML4 recommendation
------------------------------
Section 9.2.1 Phrase elements: EM, STRONG, DFN, CODE, SAMP, KBD, VAR, CITE,
ABBR, and ACRONYM

[...]
CITE:
   Contains a citation or a reference to other sources.
[...]

I think this matches exactly what I had in mind. Why didn't anybody pick
this up? I checked the archives and it was already in the W3C Working Draft
dated 8-July-1997!!!
