 I think that a better way to do this last one would be to have the option
be "Expand references at same site" or some such.

 My web pages are one huge document (about 150 pages or so), but they 
also contain links out to the rest of the Web at all levels.  What I'd like
to be able to do is say "print this page and any pages from 
www.csd.uwo.ca that descend from it, and print any *other* references as
their URLs in footnotes"...
