makecsl mockup

OK, this (start of a) mockup should give a flavor for what I’m suggesting:

I’d expect a real version to use DHTML to configure the UI as the user
goes along. And, of course, it’d be rather longer!

Oh, also, I didn’t have time to dig out the CSS tricks to do inline
previewing within select lists (for example, for options 3, 4, and 5),
but I recall it’s not that hard.

I’d be willing to help with the macro normalization* and basic design if
someone else can handle the JS stuff.

Of course, there’s no need to do this now, but I put it there for thought.


  • I spent time over the weekend moving APA and Chicago author-date to
    use only macros as a test. So far it seems to work well, though I need
    to find time for more testing and tweaking.
