Noting the points about case sensitivity in hCard-parsing [1] that
Tantek referred to - are the people who are voting for "hCite"
intending the capital C? I prefer the "hcite" capitalization.

After reading Tantek's points, I vote:
-1 'citation'
-1 'hbib'
-1 'hcitation'
+1 'hcite'

PS, why the 'h' - is it an upside-down µ, or does it stand for 'html'?
