Letters and left-justified

I recently picked up on a couple of tricks for the reference listing. They are independant of each other, so we can choose either or.

  1. When multi-links point to the same ref. It changes numbers ( 1.0 1.1 1.1 ) to lower-case letters (a b c d).
  2. Instead of the superscripts preceding the text, which make for a ragged look, they can be set to after the text, which gives a nice clean left-justification. Personally, I can't fathom why this is not a wikia-wide default.

For an example of both in action, see w:c:adjl:Rose#References

I set this with 2 of my other wikis and feel we'd benefit here with either or both.

I've also been learning about collapsing sections of text and tables so long info can be hidden until a viewer wishes to see it. --Love Robin (talk) 21:33, October 20, 2013 (UTC)

I like the look of it following the reference. As for the number to letter. Eh, I could take it or leave it. I am fine with whatever there.
I would say that if nobody objects within a week you implement it.
