Did you know that the blockquote element has a cite attribute?

This is going to be a fairly quick post.  I was reading some developer documentation recently and noticed that the blockquote element in HTML has an attribute for citing the source for that blockquote.

See the Pen

on CodePen.

It doesn’t seem to surface that citation in the rendered HTML but I’m sure that you can do that with a little CSS and JavaScript.
