The Bibliographic Class DTD

The DTD for the Bibliographic Class (bib.dtd) was designed to achieve several goals simultaneously:

The Bibliographic Class was intended for simple applications and was not intended to replace large, complex representations of bibligraphic information (e.g., the MARC record). We will continue to work with others to modify and extend the DTD, but must work to keep the principles outlined above as determining characteristics. Similarly, we will consider replacing the bib.dtd with another, more standard DTD should it accomplish the ends set out with the bib.dtd.

We have created a simple tree structure of bib.dtd, to see at a glance where elements can be placed.
