Greetings Norm,

In a private thread I had with Dom about the auto-generation of the 
XML-Spec blist, he recommended I contact you.

Does there exist a way to reference to TR, say from the <bibl> entry and 
have a stylesheet build the appropriate XML-Spec and/or HTML?

Perhaps it would be best to create a separate document to capture a "point 
in time" instead of dynamically referencing TRs.  Though it would be nice 
to have a tool like Dom built to selectively generate XML-spec bibli 
elements.

Thanks in advance for any assistance.  Just hoping to save editors/myself 
some additional work here.
