Hello spec-prod,

You may remember that W3C has a TR bibliography extractor that allows to
build references section based on the URIs of the technical reports to
be included:
http://www.w3.org/2002/01/tr-automation/tr-biblio-ui

As I was using it today for one of the spec I edit, I found it pretty
cumbersome to have to find the proper latest version URI for each of the
specs, especially given the infamous trailing-slash or not variations.
So, instead of having to do it by hand, I've built a nicer interface to
choose and pick Technical Reports:
http://www.w3.org/2000/06/webdata/xslt?xslfile=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%
2F2005%2F06%2Ftr-shopping.xsl&xmlfile=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.w3.org%2F2002%
2F01%2Ftr-automation%2Ftr.rdf

It is also based on an XSLT stylesheet run on the TR data in RDF:
http://www.w3.org/2005/06/tr-shopping.xsl

In addition, the extractor now generates a label when none is given,
based on the latest version URI of the reference.

I've also slightly improved the output of the bibliography extractor, to
make it easier to re-use the URIs once found. 

(I've followed DanC's example of having a comment in my HTML code with
the input needed to regenerate a bibliography, ŗ la:
