Summary description: Chemistry styles for biblatex
License type: lppl

Announcement text: 
The biblatex-chem bundle is a set of experiment styles to allow chemists 
to use biblatex.  The bundle is highly experimental, and in this first 
"marker" release only the formatting of journal articles has 
been addressed. 

The journals covered are:
- all ACS journals;
- RSC journals using standard (Chem. Commun.) style;
- Wiley journals uses Angew. Chem. style.

At this stage, feedback in all areas is sought.  Is the journal coverage 
sufficient? Is the naming scheme logical? Are the styles correct, as far 
as they go? What are the priorities for other record types to handle, 
and how should the extra data available from biblatex be handled?

Updates are likely to be relatively frequent, as new record types are 
added.  The next area to address is books and entries in book, followed 
by URLs and "in press" articles.
