Several weeks ago, a colleague of mine sent me a link to an Ars Technica article about a project which complements CiteIt.net by allowing writers to link to a specific portion of an Html document, and if necessary, automatically scroll down the page and highlight the selected text.
This feature is already built into Google Chrome and working its way through the standards process. There is even a Chrome plugin (code) which allows browsers to select a section of text and create a link to it.
I think this would be a great addition to CiteIt, providing authors a way to quickly direct their readers to their quote.
- the quoted text
- the URL of the cited document
This feature is not my highest priority right now, so I would be happy to see a volunteer pursue it.
