Subject: DOCBOOK-APPS: Re: Biblio: Abbrev only when first

Hash: SHA1

/ Stephan Wiesner <stephan@stephan-wiesner.de> was heard to say:
| Hi list,
| The style contains the following (fo/biblio.xsl):
|     <xsl:when test="local-name($node/child::*[1]) = 'abbrev'">
| Is there a reason for this? 
| It results in the <abbrev> value being displayed as the first element of
| the corresponding entry in the bibliography section only when it is
| written as the first tag in the biblioentry.
| I exchanged it to this:
|     <xsl:when test="$node/abbrev">
| And now I get the abbrev, if I have one declared, no matter where it is
| placed.

My idea was that the author could use an initial abbrev element to
identify the entry. Other abbrevs in the entry might be formatted
different ways. In particular, with your code, if there's more than
one abbrev, you're going to get *all* of them.

                                        Be seeing you,
