Date: De­cem­ber 13, 2010 7:49:30 PM CET
On Sun, 12 Dec 2010 Dio­midis Spinel­lis sub­mit­ted an up­date to the bib2x­html pack­age. Sum­mary de­scrip­tion: bib2x­html con­verts BibTeX files into HTML (specif­i­cally, XHTML 1.0). Li­cense type: gpl An­nounce­ment text:
This ver­sion adds an op­tion to high­light a spec­i­fied au­thor name, im­proves chrono­log­i­cal or­der­ing, adds sup­port for \href ap­pear­ing in bib­li­og­ra­phy en­tries, and fixes a few bugs. In ad­di­tion, in re­sponse to an in­creased num­ber of in­vo­ca­tion op­tions, the project's home page now sup­ports the in­ter­ac­tive dis­play of for­mat­ting ex­am­ples.
This pack­age is lo­cated at http://mir­ror.ctan.org/bib­lio/bib­tex/utils/bib2x­html . More in­for­ma­tion is at http://tug.ctan.org/info/?id=bib2x­html (if the pack­age is new it may take a day for that in­for­ma­tion to ap­pear). We are sup­ported by the TeX Users Group http://www.tug.org . Please join a users group; see http://www.tug.org/user­groups.html . Thanks for the up­load. For the CTAN Team Rainer Schöpf

bib2x­html – Con­vert BibTeX Files into XHTML

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.
