Citational makes it easy to quote nearly anything on the internet. Ever
want to deep link directly to a word, sentence, paragraph, or block of a blog
post, article, facebook status, forum post, and more? Want to freeze it in time?
How does this work?
Clicking the bookmarklet takes a snapshop (as code, not an actual image)
of the current page. This is sent to the server, where it is sanitized
URL that retrieves that snapshot on demand.
It's a simple way to make sure a user is real. Don't worry,
Citational only stores your name and user id from Facebook, and will never
(and cannot) publish anything back to Facebook.
Are there limitations?
Citational can only create citations on non-iframed html pages. That means
that pdfs and text documents won't work. I might support text documents in
the future. If your site is built well, Citational should just work
(it even does on Google Maps!).
Something doesn't look right with this citation...
