More terms

I found this list of terms of commonly used words from here
http://wwwlib.murdoch.edu.au/find/citation/chicago.html
It looks like a good list to support. I think about 1/2 of them are
currently supported.

Having tackled formatting a few more citations, I think we really need to
support some sort of syntax
for helping with volumes and editions. Formats I’ve seen include things
like:
Edition 3, 3rd edition, 3rd ed.
Vol. 1, volume 1, 1st volume.
So some support for ordinal support (as in date) would be helpful.

Is anyone collecting these ideas?

This has come up before.

It might suggest a new element: cs:number. But that’s of course a change
that would require changes in existing styles and code, and it may be a
problem in some cases.

Simon, any opinions on this?

It’s for these reasons I wish SF offered a wiki. But I’ll look into
adding the terms.
