Blank paragraphs, extraneous br tags, and italics
The Reference list generated at the end of the document seems to be generating extra br tags and blank paragraphs on my site. The code generated appears as follows:
<ol> <li> <a name="ITEM-204-0"></a> <br> J.X. Feliu, R. Cubarsi, and A. Villaverde, "Optimized release of recombinant proteins by ultrasonication of E. coli cells.", <i>Biotechnology and bioengineering</i>, 1998. <a href="http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10099290">http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/10099290</a> <p></p> </li> </ol>
I fixed this in kcite.php by removing some extra line breaks in the output functions (lines 417-418, 486-490). I know this was probably done for code readability, but I can’t switch off
wpautopon this site as most of the editors don’t know basic html. I don’t want to style br tags to display:none either, because there are times where br tags are appropriate.
<i>is no longer standard – it would be nice if you could update it to use
<em>instead. Additionally, “name” should rather be “id” for the anchor tags (eg
<a id="ITEM-204-0"></a>(name attributes should really be used for form submissions, not html anchors).
Otherwise – great plugin! Loving it!
