There were 3 lists in this file that specify the format of the entry. I give now pointers to webpages with bibTeX documentation. If someone has suggestions for better pointers, please let me know.
Here's the page I based this document on:
The first one specifies the types of documents accepted by bibTeX. Since we are creating bibTeX entries from our VISWEB entries, we are going to stick with those. The type of document should be specified under the field DOCTYPE.
The second list gives the accepted fields for each entry. These are taken directly from bibTeX format. Although we have some extra for VISWEB bookkeeping. ALL VISWEB FIELDS ARE NEEDED IN EVERY ENTRY. bibTeX fields depend on the type of document, and that's what the 3rd list is about. ONLY ONE CONTINUOUS LINE PER FIELD (discover the beauty of wrap-around text in emacs!!)
The third list specifies what fields are needed for each type of document in bibTeX. Some of the fields in the second list don't appear in the third one.
Additions and corrections welcome!!!
