Stupid question.

(1/4) > >>

For anyone who knows I have an unusual question.
I am doing an essay for english and will use this site as one of my sources, well two, for the HIV/AIDS part and also the HEP C part.

Why can't they just have a little icon for citations?  It would make it so, so, so much easier
