Announcement text given by the contribution's author:
- ----------------------------------------------------------------------
`opcit' makes the bibliographical references to appear as footnotes. It 
automatically substitutes conventional shorthands such as `Op. Cit.' and 
`Idem' for multiply cited works.

The user can still append a `References' list at the end of the document. 
The documentation has a section on how to modify the BibTeX style.
