HTML <cite> Tag
<cite> HTML element represents the name of the creative work (books, articles, poems, scripts, films, songs, operas, games, etc.). This may be the work referenced in a quote, or just a work mentioned in passing.
<cite> is usually combined with quotes, in particular, with the
<blockquote> element and indicates the name of the work from which the quote is taken. Note that
<cite> is not suitable for reference to the source, there is a cite attribute for this. Browsers usually highlight text inside
<cite> in italics.
