The <cite> tag in HTML is used to define the title of a work. The <cite> tag in HTML 4.1 defines the citation and in HTML5 defines the title of the work. It displays the text in italic format.

The text inside the <cite> tag is generally rendered in italic form. The <cite> element in HTML is like a special tag that shows the names of books, songs, poems, and other things we talk about on the web.

Titles can take various forms, such as poems, musical scores, songs, plays, paintings, films, scientific journal articles, and more.
