Just a very quick note: CSL has been developed by Bruce D'Arcus, who 
used to be pretty active on the context list a couple of years ago, so 
you might be able to get some help there. I tried using zotero for a 
while and also looked at CSL, but in the end, I gave up. It is based on 
xml, but I couldn't get my head around it and was just hitting too many 
limitations. But that may have been me, maybe you have more success!

All best
