ISO690Bibliography

Eduard Tibet edited this page Sep 26, 2019 · 4 revisions

Attached file describes special markup which can be used to write biblioentries compatible with ISO690. If you want to process your bibliography against ISO690 rules you must use this markup and turn on support for ISO690 in the DocBook stylesheets using the following parameter:

<xsl:param name="bibliography.style">iso690</xsl:param>

Important note: The below content was grabbed from the depth of the web/mailing lists, so seems it should be check throughly! Also it seems that a code samples are related to DocBook 4.5, not 5.0 or 5.1.
