A grey thing, but hey, it's Kierkegaard! Though this bothers me

My grey tribute page to Kierkegaard


 <p class="h5"><q> ... </q></p>
      <cite>K. D. Kragen, 1999.</cite>

According to the WHATWG HTML Living Standard:

The cite element represents the title of a work (e.g. a book, a paper, an essay, a poem, a score, a song, a script, a film, a TV show, a game, a sculpture, a painting, a theatre production, a play, an opera, a musical, an exhibition, a legal case report, a computer program, etc). This can be a work that is being quoted or referenced in detail (i.e. a citation), or it can just be a work that is mentioned in passing.
A person’s name is not the title of a work)) — even if people call that person a piece of work — and the element must therefore not be used to mark up people’s names. (In some cases, the b element might be appropriate for names; e.g. in a gossip article where the names of famous people are keywords rendered with a different style to draw attention to them. In other cases, if an element is really needed, the span element can be used.)

Cheers and happy coding :slight_smile:


Huh - I didn’t know that. That’s pretty counterintuitive; I have totally been using cite incorrectly :slight_smile:

Thanks for the feedback erretres, indeed that’s rather counterintuitive, i’d put a <span style="font-style: italic">K. D. Kragen, 1999.</span> then to manage the same effect. :innocent:
