Description

A bibliography. A DocBook bibliography may contain some introductory information, but its main content is a set of bibliography entries (bibliomixed elements in Simplified DocBook). These may occur directly inside the bibliography element or inside bibliodiv elements.

Processing expectations

Formatted as a displayed block.

Some systems may display only those entries within a bibliography that are cited in the containing document. This may be an interchange issue. See Appendix C, Interchanging DocBook Documents.
