Summary description: Convert BibTeX Files into XHTML
License type: gpl

Announcement text given by the package's contributor:

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. Given 
that two projects on freshmeat.net claim the name bib2html, on March 2004, 
I decided to rename the project into bib2xhtml, to emphasize the result's 
XHTML conformance.
