There are at the same time a <cite> tag and a cite attribute in HTML. How does one correctly use them?
<q> is for inline quotations, such as when you need to quote a few words, half a sentence or a phrase from someone.
<blockquote> is for large chunks of text quotations, usually displayed as a block in CSS.
<cite>, doesn’t contain any quoted content but the quote author. For example,
<p>According to <cite>Einstein</cite>, <q>space can be bent</q>.</p>
Yep, that’s the correct use of the cite tag.
The cite attribute or property for <q> and <blockquote>, as in,
<p><cite>, doesn’t contain any quoted content but the quote author.</p>
Is for listing the source of the citation.
