Right now I'm using the style "natdin" because it uses some German  
norm (DIN 1505) I can use for the papers I have to write (even those  
are not the one what the lecturers want but it's quite easy to be  
allowed to use them because those are DIN (German Industrial Norm)).  
It just would be nice to just change the behaviour of cite.
If not - it will be more discussion or I have to write a complete  
style by myself which is a little bit too much for me now
