Move proposal

From reading this article, it doesn't cover the topic "citation style" but rather covers "citation style in CZ articles". I propose moving this page to Help:citation style and adding a link to this page from somewhere such as Help:Contents.

Additionally, why is this in the biology workgroup and biology(top)? Derek Harkness 13:02, 31 January 2007 (CST)

The points you bring Derek up seem very reasonable, and perhaps more completely relevant to the talk section notes, and they only exist here because I wasn't familiar with the method for creating a Help section, but I realise now what to do,

On the other hand the text in the article itself could stay and be changed dramatically to more suit "real" life. I dont yet see it as fitting either category real or CZ use especially well yet

As far as categories biology workgroup and biology(top), any mechanism that flags it for top priority attention in this work group is fine. I'm deleting the biology tag but leaving the top tag

This flags the article as needing top priority attention by the Biology workgroup. What is the alternative way of flagging an article for top work group attention that is in a different topic category to the workgroup? David Tribe 14:38, 31 January 2007 (CST)

Article structure

Hi, I wonder if this article might benefit from describing a wider range of citation styles, with section headings for each? At the moment the article seems heavily science-based; is there not a case for tidying the article up by applying sections for Harvard, Chicago, APA and other notable styles?
