Common attributes

Tag Minimization

The start-tag is required for this element. The end-tag is optional, if your SGML declaration allows minimization.


A BiblioEntry is an entry in a Bibliography. The contents of BiblioEntry is a "database" of named fields. Presentation systems frequently suppress some elements in a BiblioEntry.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block.

BiblioEntrys are "raw." They contain 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 F.

(4.0) Future Changes

AuthorBlurb and Affiliation will be removed from the inline content of BiblioEntry in DocBook V4.0. A new wrapper element will be created to associate this information with authors, editors, and other contributors.
