abbreviations: a question for Frank

Hi Frank,

I’m going to implement abbreviation support using citeproc-js as a
model:
http://gsl-nagoya-u.net/http/pub/citeproc-doc.html#getabbreviations

and I have a question. The first key of the list is “default”: what are
other possible values and what are they used for? Is that meant for
multilingual support?

Thanks,–
andrea

just to pitch in, to my understanding, the values act as namespaces. Multilingual support could be theoretically achieved that way, however, if that is the main rationale perhaps the structure should be changed to reflect the ‘multi’ values on items and names.

Glad there is interest in abbreviations! I’ve been juggling things
around privately for the past month, and I think I have a handle on
the requirements – which means that now is probably a good time to
get critical feedback.

I need to prepare a document describing what the categories in the
Abbreviations Gadget (and processor) mean, and how the abbreviations
in each are applied. This weekend I’ll be tied down with some other
tasks, but I should have something readable up within a week or so
after. Meanwhile, there’s this:
