Well, if you can do without the second border, I always use padding on the blockquote then negative margins on the cite to make it look kind of like a table. For example;

blockquote {
	background: #022C44;
	color: #fff;
	border: 1px solid #00131E;
	border-bottom: 2px solid #00131E;
	margin: 5px 0;
	padding: 5px;
	font-style: italic;

blockquote cite {
	background: #00131E;
	color: #fff;
	border-bottom: 1px solid #00131E;
	display: block;
	margin: -5px -5px 2px -5px;
	padding: 5px;
	font-weight: bold;

Though I do agree this can be frustrating at times. However I personally haven't encountered a situation where my current method doesn't work.
Well, last night as I was getting ready for bed I realized that the forum quote box style didn't match the version in the theme I made for my blogging software, which was absurdly simple and looked fine. I went through all of this frustration for nothing [Image: sob.png].
Bumping this up, so annoying. Would love to completely re-style the quote box but Goddamn thing is totally hard-coded and pretty confusing for someone like me. Don't understand why it's not a template like everything else, or at least an editable MyCode.
What exactly are you trying to do?
