    advice on tags to disply some credits?

    I was in the past using the wrong way of showing some credits...
    HTML Code:
    <div class="cd">- found by someone</div>
    Later, i read about semantic markup and refined my code to...
    HTML Code:
    <em class="cd">- found by someone</em>
    Again, after some readup, i found this tag "cite".
    So what is the appropriate tag to credit someone?

    Hi,

    The cite tag assigns structural meaning to the designated part of the document and should contain a citation or reference to some other source material.

    If that is appropriate to you text then it is the correct way to do it

    MOre info here:
