USe the "cite" element:-

<cite>Some Book Title, Some Person, Blargh Press, Date</cite>

I've always wondered whether a citation should go in or out of a
blockquote/q though. I recently decided that I didn't care, and use
them inside as default:-

<blockquote>
   <div>Some quote block</div>
   <div>- <cite>source</cite></div>
</blockquote>

For someone as pedantic as me to say that I don't care... well, it
must be a non-issue :-)

Cheers,
