bib2xhtml – Convert Files into XHTML

bib2xhtml is a program that converts files into HTML (specifically XHTML 1.0). The conversion is mostly done by specialized style files, derived from a converted bibliography style template. This ensures that the original 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.
