Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: Bibliography management/BibTex equivalent

/ Bernd Kreimeier <bk@oddworld.com> was heard to say:
| I do not want to rely on the bibliomixed etc. "cooked" elements 
| as they seem to be a procedural markup fallback for breakdown of 
| biblioentry?

The problem with biblioentry (for me :-) is that it's impossible to
design an "out of the box" stylesheet that would do the right thing
for every possible bag of markup.

If you have a strictly mandated house style for bibliographic data,
you can probably write stylesheets to do the right thing.

| render in conformance with standard citation styles. Has a
| DocBook module with BibTex-equivalent elements been discussed
| and rejected?

Nope. If you can propose one, please feel free (on docbook, not docbook-apps).

                                        Be seeing you,
