A while back, years in fact, I found a citation template for WordPerfect that applied the formats suggested in Elizabeth Shown Mills’ book. Alas, now that I understand it, I can no long find the little devil.
Has anyone here seen it (or better, downloaded it)? I’d like to see if there isn’t a way to obtain it again and apply a programming language to assist in its implementation.
