Name

biblioentry — A raw entry in a bibliography

Synopsis

biblioentry ::= (citebiblioid | citerefentry | citetitle | person | personblurb | personname | subtitle | title | titleabbrev | Publishing inlines | “Info” elements)+

Description

A biblioentry is an entry in a bibliography. The contents of biblioentry are a database of named fields. Presentation systems frequently suppress some elements in a biblioentry.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block.

A biblioentry is raw. It contains a database-like collection of named fields. It is the responsibility of the processing system to select elements from within a biblioentry, present them in the correct order, and add all punctuation.

There is no expectation that a system will present all of the fields in a biblioentry or that they will be displayed in the order in which they occur.

Correct formatting of biblioentrys is an interchange issue. See Appendix D.
