I briefly looked over it, and it is looking good. That being said, I believe that the MLA style has been updated, and the book titles are no longer supposed to be underlined but rather italicized. It's something to keep in mind. I don't know if there are any other changes. Thanks for posting this, it should come in handy :-)!

Thanks for adding this, I thought it should have been standard in Open Office (OO means open office, right? I'm new ^_^) but it wasn't so I'm glad that you created this =D. Also, I was just wondering if: a) you needed help in completing the bibliography function (I'm going to school for computer programming and I need some experience =D) and b) if you know when the bibliography update is going to be finished?

Thanks again man/woman! I might as well ask, are you a guy or a girl?

Thanks =D
