            Bug ID: 25259
           Summary: Conversations: recommend to use 'cite' instead of
                    'span'/'b'
           Product: HTML WG
           Version: unspecified
          Hardware: All
                OS: All
            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: HTML5 spec
          Assignee: dave.null@w3.org

The section "Conversations" [1] recommends to use 'span' or 'b' "to mark the
speaker for styling purposes".

But as 'cite' [2] now [3] can also be used for author names, shouldn’t we
recommend to use 'cite' for the speaker name? (This would be similar to the
current example for comments in a blog.)
