Very clear structure will be valuable to students at all levels who are confused by the construction of a citation.  The in-text feature takes this beyond OWL, which, although more comprehensive, requires more patience.

I like the functionality of inputing the ISBN to get the reference information.  Overall, it's easy to use.  User interface could probably be improved, but then again, this is a free site used more for ad-placement than anything else.
