/ Steve K Speicher <sspeiche@us.ibm.com> was heard to say:
| 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?

Yes. In fact, I do this for the XSL/XML Query specifications.

In CVS (under WWW/XML/Group/xsl-query-specs/etc), you'll find tr.xml
which I build from tr.rdf with ../style/tr-bibl.xsl.

Then, in individual specifications, I use empty bibls, for example:

  <bibl id="xml-infoset"     key="Infoset"/>

And the stylesheet constructs the appropriate bibliography entry from
the "id" and the data in tr.xml. The id has to be the short name of
the specification.

I suppose it would be good to make this available on a wider scale. I
think all that would be necessary is the automatic construction of
tr.xml whenever tr.rdf changes and some stylesheet parameters.
