comment Mimic \parencites using bibtex
@Andrew well I only came up with \citealp after you mentioned another way to come up with a similar output using \cite, so from where I stand the solution should be given to you. In any case, if you feel it'd be better if I post it myself, I will.

comment Mimic \parencites using bibtex
Because that would mean I end up with parentheses within parentheses, which is bad practice I believe (at least I don't like it) But your comment gave me the idea of using \citealp which does precisely that. If you'd like you can put that in the form of an answer and I'll accept it.

Please don't delete your answer, it came very close of being a complete answer to the question and it got enough votes to ensure people found it useful. As I said in a cmmt above I'm accepting your answer and I'll present a caveat in the original question mentioning latexdiff.

That's very interesting @cfr, I wasn't aware of the XY problem and I surely wasn't aware of the existence of latexdiff. I've tried it now and it looks like just what I was attempting to do manually. I'll probably mark Andrew's answer as accepted tomorrow but your comment is really spot on. Thank you very much (and the rest of the guys who helped too of course).

That's even less "just works-sy" :) I'm sorry, I don't quite follow your question, would you mind re-phrasing it?

And still my issue with \protect remains. If I use \hl{This is a line where a citation \protect\cite{Knuth86} appears.} it will prevent appears from being highlighted even though it is wrapped inside the \hl command.

Yiannis: the not possible part Im' pretty sure it's not true. LaTeX is a programming language and I see no reason why this command could not exist. The typographically abhorent bit I can understand but I'm not after such a command to use in finished documents. This would be useful when one needs to highlight changes say to show a co-author quickly what has changed in a new version of an article/chapter/etc.

Adding [] before the section title works in getting it highlighted, thanks. As for the rest I don't know if I might be missing something but the \protect command makes a bit of a mess by changing how anything beyond the \hl{} that follows is handled. Also what I want is to not have to jump through these loops in order to get \hl to work. I want a command that will just work without needing any extra commands.

The OP no doubt would prefer the footnotes to be cared for automatically, I would :) I'll keep the question open until tomorrow then. Thank you!
