Hi urt,

Thanks for thinking of Citeline for your project -- it does sound like a
good application
of the tool, and there aren't many tools like it. While I certainly
agree with you about the
need for IE support, the sad truth is that we have don't currently have
anyone funded
to work on Citeline beyond minimal maintenance, and I have no estimate
of when that
situation will change.

As for alternatives, I haven't tried this one myself but it looks pretty

Best wishes for your project,
