12 September 2006 at 05:04 PM by John Rankin - define needs
Added lines 1-17:
To support bibliographies, we need as a minimum the ability to:

* define one or more Bibtex files, either as wiki pages or as uploaded files

* provide a mechanism to cite a reference in a Bibtex file
** for example [=(:cite unique-ref-id:)=]

* provide a mechanism to specify a Bibtex file, the citation style and the reference style
** for example [=(:bibtex bib=PageName cite=text:)=]

* output the list of cited references at the end of the page or page collection, in alphabetical order

* support both HTML and PDF output, with an option to export a page or pages as raw Latex

It would be highly desirable to:

* provide a form-based mechanism for adding and editing references
