I wanted to alter the example given to *only* illustrate the specific point
I was making. When too much changes, often it is not clear what change is
meant to illustrate what.
Using the <cite> element is of course more semantic and is thus is the
better authoring practice.

The precise names for the properties are still very much under discussion.
See citation-brainstorming for current thoughts on this.
See also naming-principles for some of the methodology of how we try to pick
property names for microformats:

Karl, the folks on the list working on the citation microformat have done *A
LOT* of work to document both existing examples of citations on the Web
today, and existing citation formats. Please take a look, and if you know
of any more, please add them:
> BibTex format uses
I believe BibTex is already documented in citation-formats. Feel free to
improve the documentation if necessary!
