Description Omegatron 2007-08-27 00:50:09 UTC
I read somewhere that the only reason the citation numbers have brackets around them is to make a larger click target.  I think it looks much better to have superscripted numbers without brackets, like any normal publication.  If you need a bigger click target for the number, use CSS to increase the size of the clickable whitespace around it.

Fully customizable solution such as using MediaWiki:Citelinkformat or so would be better, since different norms for different languages could have different forms of writing of reference numbers.

Changed topic to reflect on this.
