The refstyle provides a consistent way of producing references throughout 
a project. Enough flexibility is provided to make local changes to a single 
reference. The user can configure his or own setup.

It has a direct interface to VARIOREF and namedref's from the
NAMEDREF package can easily be incorporated (if needed). 
For large projects such as a series of books or a multi volume thesis, 
written as freestanding documents, a facility is provided to interface to 
the XR package for external document references.

The REFSTYLE package is BABEL compliant in that all language definitions are 
added to the \extras<langauge> token list, enabling local and global language 
changes through the BABEL language changing commands. Afrikaans and English 
definitions are provided --- any other contributions will be appreciated.
