Re: configuring a conditional
> For example, APA > maybe interested in preserving the first six authors in a list, but > another style will be interested interested in the first ten. when I did some work on revtex's bibtex support a few years back, they wanted to be able to say that et al only be used in some journals if if there were (from memory) less than 600 authors, and that the first 400 authors always be listed explictly, numbers which stretched the support tools available at the time:-) I didn't actually comment on your question > Now my question is, how would I actually implement this in > the XSLT? As I couldn't really guess what half the attributes in your example mean. (Or rather I could guess several meanings) > <rule when-more-than="2" and-less-than="6" is clear enough (although I hate the attribute-name-as-sentence-fragment style) But even here is this rule triggered on an author name that's in a position in that range, or a citation reference that has a number of authors that falls in that range? > and-position="subsequent" subsequent to what? (The answer to this question might be obvious given the answer to the first question) > and-position="first" as above. > use-first="1" I can't even guess what this means. > <renderas font-style="italic">et al.</renderas> I'm not sure that it's good to mix up the transformational aspects of possibly trucating an author list with the font styling aspects of how to typeset et al. (But at least in this case I can guess what you mean:-) David ________________________________________________________________________ This e-mail has been scanned for all viruses by Star.
