A new pack­age has been in­stalled on tug.ctan.org and should make its way to your fa­vorite mir­ror quite soon. Thanks for the up­load, Jim Hef­feron ====================================================================== The fol­low­ing in­for­ma­tion was pro­vided by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor. Name of con­tri­bu­tion: bib2x­html Author's name: Dio­midis Spinel­lis Lo­ca­tion on CTAN: bib­lio/bib­tex/utils/bib2x­html Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: Con­vert BibTeX Files into XHTML Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text given by the pack­age's con­trib­u­tor: - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- bib2x­html is a pro­gram that con­verts BibTeX files into HTML (specif­i­cally XHTML 1.0). The con­ver­sion is mostly done by spe­cial­ized BibTeX style files, de­rived from a con­verted bib­li­og­ra­phy style tem­plate. This en­sures that the orig­i­nal BibTeX styles are faith­fully re­pro­duced. Some post­pro­cess­ing is per­formed by Perl code. This is an up­date of the bib2html pro­gram writ­ten by David Hull in 1996 and main­tained by him un­til 1998. I have been a happy user of the pro­gram since 1995, us­ing the pro­gram to keep my pub­li­ca­tion list up to date, and, lately, to gen­er­ate the on-line bib­li­og­ra­phy list for my book Code Read­ing: The Open Source Per­spec­tive (Ad­di­son-Wes­ley 2003). After 1998 no other changes were made to the pro­gram, and I failed to lo­cate an ac­tive pro­gram home page. Since there were a num­ber of changes I needed to bring the pro­gram up to date with evolv­ing web stan­dards, I de­cided to adopt bib2html for main­te­nance, evo­lu­tion, and fur­ther dis­tri­bu­tion. The first new pub­lic re­lease made in 2004, fea­tures sup­port for XHTML 1.0. Given that two projects on fresh­meat.net claim the name bib2html, on March 2004, I de­cided to re­name the project into bib2x­html, to em­pha­size the re­sult's XHTML con­for­mance. - - ---------------------------------------------------------------------- You can have a look at the pack­age at http://tug.ctan.org/tex-archive/bib­lio/bib­tex/utils/bib2x­html al­though you may get a bet­ter net­work con­nec­tion by vis­it­ing a mir­ror of CTAN that is near to you; see http://www.ctan.org/tex-archive/README.mir­rors
