The Oscola package works (only!) with Biblatex (v 2.0 or later) and
Biber (v 1.0 or later). It aims to implement, almost completely, the
OSCOLA style of legal citation, according to the 4th edition. For
further information about coverage see the documentation.


The package consists of three principal files (oscola.bbx, oscola.cbx
and english-oscola.lbx) which should be placed, documentation
(oscola.pdf), and a very short index style file
(oscola.ist). Those files are copyright (c) Paul Stanley 2012-13.

I find the TDS difficult, but I think the correct installation (under
the local tree) is as follows:

oscola.cbx: With the citation style files in
english-oscola.lbx: With the language definition files in
oscola.pdf: With documentation in a suitable directory 
            under .../doc/latex
oscola.ist: With the index style files in
