Faculty member in the School of Mathematical Sciences at the Rochester Institute of Technology. I've been involved for the past 6 years on a textbook project which has increased my usage of LaTeX dramatically and that has grown into a strong desire to code well, instead of the hackneyed garbage that I limped along with for years.

Are these references going to appear at the end of the work in a bibliography, or end notes? or just in the footnotes?

This is exactly the project I have set for myself for this summer. I hope someone more experienced beats me to it!

comment Selecting random elements from a comma separated list
@ScottH. Thanks for your answer and other help. I selected egreg's answer only because I didn't have to change how I compiled my files, whereas using LuaTeX would be a bigger change for me.

comment Selecting random elements from a comma separated list
Thank you! My TeXLive utility needed updating. Oddly (to me), that didn't fix the problem. I had to track down the packages l3kernal and l3packages and re-install them before I stopped getting Undefined command sequence errors.

@egreg I just copy/pasted your code into a new document and ran it. I'm getting an Undefined control sequence error. It is complaining about \clist_count:n.

@egreg Forgive my ignorance, but I thought LaTeX3 had not been released yet. How would I implement your solution since I'm using MacTeX-2012?
