The (X)HTML <cite> tag is not displaying as an inline element by default. Cool Reader app is always breaking the line before it.
The problem can be solved via CSS [ cite { display: inline; font-style: italic; } ] but I think it is redundant and not the ideal solution.
I hope you will be able to fix it.
Thank you in advance,

    See http://www.w3schools.com/tags/tag_cite.asp:

    Differences Between HTML 4.01 and HTML5

    In HTML5, the <cite> tag defines the title of a work.

    In HTML 4.01, the <cite> tag defines a citation.

    EPUB2 is not HTML5-based, so the behavior is correct.
