Hi Aditya,

Any news on bib module - t-bib.tex?

If enable the colouring in cite commands in macros.tex I get;

\setupcite  [interaction=start, compress=no,color=darkgreen]

Teams and games
Multi-agent systems can be classified as teams and games on the basis of 
the ob-
jective of the agents. In teams all agents have the same objective; in 
games, each
agent has its own objective. Historically, games were first studied in 
the seminal
work of and were later developed as a subfield of mathematical economics 
called
game theory (Aumann and Hart, , , ). Teams were first studied in
mathematical economics by and , and later in control systems by , , , , 
and others

Instead of;

() and
Marschak and Radner (), and later in control systems by Witsenhausen 
(a,
), Ho et al. (), Ho (), and others.


Obviously I had to move t-bib.tex from the current directory to even get 
the it compile.

Thanks
Mohamed
