Thanks. But there's no any indication in the log file of using mkII, unless mkiv uses the same code. All \cite[alternative][key] variants work for me except the \cite[textnum][key]
variant. See the attached example tex file with its pdf output and log file.

My question still is how I could define an alternative \cite command for numerical citations,
e.g. \cite[textnum].
