Dear mailing list,

My questions are related to one by Rik a few weeks back (but he did not get
an answer yet). I am using the APA style (context version 2018.10.03 16:02).

Q1: Shouldn't the order of multiple citations (using a single \cite command)
be the same as the order in the publications list? In the example below, the
orders are different.

Q2: Is there a way to capitalise the first letter of a last name in
\cite[...]? For example, this may be necessary when starting a new sentence.
But it is also generally preferred in Dutch when the last name starts with
'van' (or something similar).


\startbuffer[biblio]
@article{PAPER1,
	author    = {First Author},
	title     = {A paper},
	year      = {2016}
}

@article{PAPER2,
	author    = {First Writer},
	title     = {Another paper},
	year      = {2017}
}

@article{PAPER3,
	author    = {Jan van Amsterdam},
	title     = {Yet another paper},
	year      = {2018}
}
\stopbuffer

\usebtxdataset[biblio.buffer]
\usebtxdefinitions[apa]

\starttext
% Order is 3, 1, 2
We refer to \cite[authoryears][PAPER1, PAPER2, PAPER3].

\cite[authoryears][PAPER3] provides background.

Thanks in advance,
All the best,
