Thanks John, I've been able to make a work-around by using tabbar-ruler
to create tabs and then copy my 'reference list' into a small temporary
buffer which is next to my working document so its easy to switch too. I
can add reference numbers to it and at the end of the day I copy them
back into my main reference list. I'm finding the org-mode document is
ideal for keeping urls, and also reference notes at the end of the
document after my latex command ending the document.
