I would prefer we avoid to use "external". Text which has a source is just fine. 
For example, in a forum, a text in the same page, with a URI reference (ex: http://forum.example.com/topic/foo#comment21) could be used in the replied answer with the appropriate blockquote linking to the source in the same page, aka

	<div id="comment22">

	   <blockquote cite="http://forum.example.com/topic/foo#comment21">
	      <p>cats are cute</p>

	   <p>@John, I prefer dogs</p>
