Citation machine

A teacher was talking about a college class paper they were completing and how they didn't like working out the APA format for citations in their bibliography.  seems to be a very helpful, reliable source to simply click the format  (MLA, APA, or Turabian)  you are using, select the resource type such as whether it is an online journal or printed book, and then fill in the blanks it requests.  It then generates a citation you can cut and paste into your document.

I haven 't had to write a paper requiring citations in a while (and don't really miss it), so I'd appreciate it if those English teachers, Librarians, etc out there who are familiar with the styles, check it out and express your opinion on how well or poorly it works.
