Generally you don't have to do any markup for these.
They are automatically generated by the stylesheets.

As someone else said, you cannot use the brackets in id
and linkend attributes.  But you can get the text you want
using xreflabel and a permitted id:
 <biblioentry id="biblio-2" xreflabel="[2]">  and  <xref linkend="biblio-2">)

Different references under what circumtstances?
Can a stylesheet distinguish the differences in the markup?

In biblioentry, the title can contain a ulink element.
Is that what you meant?
