Hi Eran

I've just read the wiki and have made a very tentative effort to combine 
hCard and cite-rel µFs in 3 examples for use in our blog app. Would the 
first [1] with the vcard url and the source url for rel-cite within the 
<cite class="vcard"></cite> be confusing? The other examples [2][3] 
remove the vcard to outside the <blockquote> but would that remove an 
implicit association between the author of the quote and the distributed 
conversation? I've tried to take in to account quotations within a post 
and also relevant quotes that may appear as comments to a post. Comments 
and corrections would be appreciated.


Quotation - <cite class="vcard"><a class="url fn" href="url">Joe 
Bloggs</a> - <a rel="cite" href="source url">source title</a></cite>

Quotation - <a rel="cite" href="source url">source title</a>
<cite class="vcard"><a class="url fn" href="url">Joe Bloggs</a></cite>

Quotation - <a rel="cite" href="source url">source title</a>
<cite class="vcard fn">Joe Bloggs (<a class="url"
