Or you could have `<cite date-cite="granger2013" type="citet"...`.
Might be more flexible.

I feel that writing the explicit html tag is a bit cumbersome and that
we could do with a shorthand. We could use latex \citet, \citep
directly, or we could go with the pandoc @granger2013, [@granger2013].
The problem with shorthand is that it won't be rendered nicely in the
interactive notebook.

I've been thinking about this recently as I'm developing my thesis in
the notebook. I've also got some ideas about referencing figures. I'd
be happy to work on a PR with you John.
