cite

Darwin Information Typing Architecture (DITA) Version 1.2

The <cite> element is used when you need a bibliographic citation that refers to a book or article. It specifically identifies the title of the resource.

Though citations will often be set apart from surrounding text, such as through italics, rendering of the <cite> element is left up to implementations.
