Oh, I wasn't aware of that!  Thanks!  It would be marginally easier
for the intended audience if a simpler notation like /cited/ was
possible, but I can live with using the role notation, and it means I
don't need to pick more typographic symbols for everything.  (%per se%
for foreign text, @DARPA@ for acronyms, ad nauseam...)

LaTeX2HTML is pain.
