Post Turabian Book Citations
I'm a seminary student and therefore write a lot of papers. I've found TW very helpful in doing research and studying the original languages. Just recently, I've begun downloading many of the classics and organizing them according to topic in a custom module set. One thing that would be very helpful would be if I could copy something out of my books in TW, paste it into Microsoft Word and have it automatically pull all the appropriate bibliographic information in whatever style I was working with (MLA, Turabian, Chicago, etc.), and put it in a footnote at the bottom of the page. I know several high end Bible programs do that, but I wasn't sure how difficult it would be to implement into TW. What are my chances at getting this in a future release of TW? :D

This is a good suggestion, i will add it in my todo list.
By they way, do you have info on the bibliographic styles you refer to?

Post Re: Turabian Book Citations
These are the top three styles in academic citation of which I am aware. I am primarily familiar with Turabian, however, since that is the style my institution of higher learning uses.

Turabian
Here is a link to a quick citation guide from Kate L. Turabian (from which the style got the name of Turabian).
http://www.press.uchicago.edu/books/turabian/turabian_citationguide.html
She has written a book detailing just about everything regarding citations, dissertations, paper writing, etc. in the Turabian style. The name of her books is A Manual for Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition: Chicago Style for Students and Researchers.

MLA
Here is a quick refence guide in the MLA (Modern Language Association) style.
http://www.ipsd.org/Uploads/DEC_Secondary_MLA%20Quick%20Reference.pdf
The Handbook for this style is MLA Handbook for Writers of Research Papers by Joseph Gibaldi.

APA
Here is a quick reference guide in the APA (American Psychological Association) style.
http://www.ipsd.org/Uploads/DEC_Secondary_APA%20Quick%20Reference.pdf
The handbook for this style is Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association
