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"... James H.G.
