Abstract

We present Biblet, a set of BibTeX bibliography styles (bst) which generate XHTML from BibTeX databases. Unlike other BibTeX to XML/HTML converters, Biblet is written entirely in the native BibTeX style language and therefore works ``out of the box'' on any system that runs BibTeX. Features include automatic conversion of LaTeX symbols to HTML or Unicode entities; customizable graphical hyperlinks to PostScript, PDF, DVI, LaTeX, and HTML resources; support for nonstandard but common fields such as day, isbn, and abstract; hideable text blocks; and output of the original BibTeX entry for sharing citations. Biblet's highly structured XHTML output means that bibliography appearance to can be drastically altered simply by specifying a Cascading Style Sheet (CSS), or easily postprocessed with third-party XML, HTML, or text processing tools. We compare and contrast Biblet to other common converters, describe basic usage of Biblet, give examples of how to produce custom-formatted bibliographies, and provide a basic overview of Biblet internals for those wishing to modify the style file itself.
