In the first Web Design Project example, there is a blockquote. I understand that a blockquote is “a section [within a document] that is quoted from another source”.
It includes a cite attribute, but it doesn’t seem to result in a useable link. Is it there for screen readers? Or is it essentially a comment to others reading code? Obviously I understand it’s the source of the quote, but functionally what is it doing in the code?
Also, just so I have my terminology correct- this cite is an “attribute”, correct?
