Subject: Re: DOCBOOK: How to refer to a BiblioEntry

/ "Edgar Vonk" <edgar.vonk@graddelt.com> was heard to say:
| Is there a standard way to refer to a BiblioEntry?

The DocBook standard way is what you describe: <xref> points to

The rest of your question is really a (set of) stylesheet issue(s).

| Currently I refer to a BiblioEntry like this:
| <citation><xref linkend="Walsh2000"/></citation>

That's fine, although I'd probably skip the <citation> myself, unless
you use it to do something.

| <biblioentry id="Walsh2000"><abbrev>Walsh2000</abbrev>  .. etc
| Is this the right way to refer to biblio entries? And is there a
| standard to use for biblioentry IDs / abbrevs, like 'AuthorYear' or
| something?

You can probably get the stylesheets to do whatever you want, if you
have consistent bibliography entries.

| If the stylesheet is clever enough it can extract the id from the
| biblioentry and display that as the abbreviation, instead of the abbrev
| element.
