bibliomset — A cooked container for related bibliographic information.


A bibliomset is a “cooked” wrapper for a collection of bibliographic information.

The purpose of this wrapper is to assert the relationship that binds the collection. For example, in a bibliomixed entry for an article in a journal, you might use two bibliomsets to wrap the fields related to the article and the fields related to the journal.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block.

A bibliomset is “cooked.” In addition to named fields, it can contain interspersed text to provide punctuation and other formatting information.

The processing system is generally expected to present each and every element in the set, all interspersed #PCDATA, in the order in which it occurs.
