I often use <q> to set-up my quote marks.You can set up your quote marks in CSS so that they appear automatically.
the property is: content:
The opening quote mark is: '\201C';
The closing quote mark is: '\201D';
You need to use the pseudo elements

The cite element has changed now it can only contain the title of a document, the title of a book, webpage, poem song etc. Using cite for a title only, appears to be the only way we can go at the moment but this has caused quite a bit of discussion. Before we were able to use this element to include the author's name but that is not longer allowed, which leaves the question what are we supposed to do with the author's name. If you add a footer to the blockquote you could put the author's name there.
