I am trying to use the plugin on a (more or less static) page to display either German or English abstracts within a list of publications. As I would like any user to see the essential citations, the page should probably start with a [:*], such that everyone sees the citations, regardless of his/her language. But this doesn't seem to work; instead nothing is shown.
I also consider it risky that this an "open formatting". I think that it would be more secure if the text portions displayed in a certain language could be bracket by start / stop tags, i.e something like [:de]German[:/de].
