Apologies. I think my final comment came across as more dismissive than I intended. What I meant (and should have said), was that the only -- minor -- annoyance I've found with your approach is the inability to italicize. Trivial in comparison with the issues I've been encountering trying to do it FTM's way.
I'm a bit fixated on proper citation at the moment because I *am* getting ready to publish a book, and improperly formatted citations will be seen as a reflection on the quality of my work, even if it's FTM's fault.
