I have my citation style set to Turabian.

I copied and pasted a couple of paragraphs from chapter 7 of Text and Task: Scripture and Mission, and this was the footnote generated:

Richard K. Moore, The Significance of the Old Testament for Paul’s Missionary Calling, ed. Michael Parsons, Text and Task: Scripture and Mission (Milton Keynes, UK: Paternoster Press, 2005), 99–100.

It correctly got the name of the chapter within an edited work, and the name of the author of that chapter, but this is incorrect formatting for Turabian.

It should be:

Richard K. Moore, “The Significance of the Old Testament for Paul’s Missionary Calling,” in Text and Task: Scripture and Mission, ed. Michael Parsons (Milton Keynes, UK: Paternoster Press, 2005), 99–100.

Note the changes: added quotation marks around the chapter title, moved editor to after the title of the book, added "in" before title of the book, and put title of the book in italics.

(This is with new citation engine, which should be working correctly to be released, but I realize this is not a show-stopper for releasing 5.1 now that we're in Release Candidate mode. Hoping for a 5.1a bugfix release shortly after 5.1 goes gold.)

All of my citations are generating with the title italics. Can you tell me where you are pasting your text?
