Where (B. Jones, editor) should be (Jones, B., editor).
I think I see. When you do substitution, you are wanting to carry the
formatting logic along with the variable.
That’s not how I see it. If an editor is substituted for an author,
then the editor takes on the formatting of the author. So …
Is getting rid of the sort-separator attribute supposed to nullify the
author-as-sort-order attribute on ?
No. Sort separator apples simply if a name gets displayed as the sort
order. And the order may vary between citations and bib.
If so, I can fix this
without schema modifications. Otherwise, perhaps author-as-sort-order
be an attribute of or ?
The essential thing about the author-as-ssrt-order attribute is it
defines the ordering of each name within a list of names, regardless of
the variable (if author, editor, etc.).
The output for an editor but no author does in fact match:

One obvious change to consider is to have role is as top-level
I don’t think this solves the problem.
You’re probably right. Was just thinking might avoid some potential
See if my explanation at top solves your problem (as I am seeing it,
there isn’t one).
It seems inevitable that both and need to be redefined,
letting the role attribute take multiple roles, we can redefine it only
once. (But then again, how many books have a translator but no author,
besides the Bible? Maybe I could just get rid of the tag
Am not sure on that one.
There’s actually another problem with the current substitution logic:
A little down the list I have a container title. But actually, that’s
not really specific enough. The rule is typically “periodical-title” |
“title” | “anonymous”
In other words, certain kinds of container titles (may) get
substituted, but not other kinds.
BTW, you now should have developer access (to SVN and such).
