The markup template is wrong. You may not have more than one element with a certain id. (ie. they must be unique). It would also be advisable to use the <cite> tag. So in an effort to make it as simple as possible, I'd propose this:

quote here...
  <cite>source here</cite>

of course the css needs to be updated as well. We should stay away from fixed size text and there's also a lot of redundency in the css right now. how about something as simple as this?

cite {
   display: block;
   text-align: right;
   padding-right: 15px;
   color: #333;
}

Additionally, if you are avoiding fixed size text you should avoid any dimensions given in pixels. Instead use em.

cite {
   display: block;
   padding-right: .5em;
   color: silver;
}

Measures in em scale gracefully with text size.


Also, why not use the Wiki markup for these? That is:

; "Some quotation" : Some attribution
