Thanks for replying, murtaugh.

In regards to this markup:

<figure>
    <footer>Ray</footer>
    <blockquote>Semantics are just another brick in the wall.</blockquote>
</figure>

I think it's a little odd to use <footer> in this context. Simply because it's weird to see <footer> before the actual context of the item. However, <tfoot> is used in a similar manner as that's usually added before <tbody>.

If anyone else has any other suggestions, that would be great.

The definition of the <blockquote> and <cite> tags has been tweaked. A name is now a legitimate subject for citation.

Keeping this in mind does the pattern for <blockquote> should be changed?
