uses the ":after" pseudo-element like so:
content: "Quote from: " attr(cite);
border-top: 1px solid #999;
margin: 1em 0 0;
padding: .5em 0 0;

Re: Cite Your Blockquotes
That's an interesting idea, but maybe not _that_ great. First...
... is not a negligible point. Second, it shows the _URL_ of the cited
resource, out of necessity, since the URL is what the cite attribute
contains. I think we should avoid making URLs visible and use titles or
names of documents instead.
Besides, it's actually easier to put the citation after the blockquote, as a
normal link as normal page content. There's hardly a reason to make its
appearance depend on CSS. More notes along these lines:
