Description bdk 2006-02-11 12:21:56 UTC
As for other special pages (compare bug 564) it should be possible 
to add a seperate message at the head of [[Special:Cite]] that can be 
edited easily to explain the cite function or to give basic hints. 
This is mainly needed as a part of user friendlyness, because the 
special pages with only a blank text field and a button to press
are not self-explanatory. 

So should 
show up on as
is displayed on

Thanks a lot in advance :-)
