RefTagger: Why it's good

RefTagger is basically a javascript tool that provides a link and a pop-up tool-tip for bible references, like John 1:1. I love it, because it enables you to write posts with bible references, without needing to quote material that isn't strictly pertinent to your flow of thought, but still have it present. I find it frustrating reading books where the author says, "So we see X, Y, Z (cf. Jn 1:1, 2:4, 5:16, 7:8)" (I just randomly selected those verses). Not because the author has done anything wrong, but simply because I'm about 0% likely to read those references if there not in the text, but neither do I want them in the text. Reftagger solves that problem - they're there but not there. Give it a go.
