Subject: info on citation item

Subject: citation proposal

Hi Bob,

this is the latest and greatest version of our citation proposal,
which I ask you to distribute to the participants of the upcoming
DocBook TC meeting.


Improved citation support in DocBook

[This proposal is an updated version of the one discussed at the
DocBook TC meeting in November. The proposal was condensed
considerably based on the suggestions during the meeting.]

Changes to the previous version:
- boiled down to the bare bones: addition of <biblioref>
- use end instead of stop as an attribute to ease tab completion

Addition of a new <biblioref> element


<citation><biblioref linkend="Miller1999" unit="chapter"
start="2" /></citation>

Code required:
Addition of elements with the following content models and attributes:

<!ELEMENT biblioref - - EMPTY >
<!ATTLIST biblioref linkend IDREF #REQUIRED
                    endterm IDREF #IMPLIED
                    unit NMTOKEN #IMPLIED
                    start NMTOKEN #IMPLIED
                    end NMTOKEN #IMPLIED
                    renderas (full|author|year|title) #IMPLIED

Inclusion of <biblioref> wherever <xref> is allowed

Optional: allow NMTOKENS in the start attribute to accommodate lists
of pages, like in "<biblioref linkend="Miller1999" unit="pages"
start="34-36 40-44" />


We'd greatly appreciate if the TC could discuss this proposal in the
next meeting.
