Question about your harvard1 style

Hello Julian (and others),

In this style:

Harvard Reference format 1 (Author-Date) http://www.zotero.org/styles/harvard1

you use this macro for editors:

 <macro name="editor">
     <names variable="editor" delimiter=", ">
         <name and="symbol" initialize-with=". " delimiter=", "/>
         <label form="short" prefix=", " suffix="." text- 

case=“lowercase”/>

which (in my citeproc-py implementation) produces output like this:

Brinkkemper, O., 2006. Archaeological Monitoring Standard A. Smit, R.
van Heeringen & E. Theunissen, , eds… , 49–53

for which I doubt that ", , eds… " is what you where after.

My interpretation is that the delimiter attribute on the names tag
should not be set, or no prefix attribute on the label tag. Do you see
this too in Zotero? Or is am I doing something odd?

The double point I can’t yet explain. I think it comes from somewhere
in my code where a suffix gets printed for an empty variable.

Is this correct Bruce? It would be more consistent if it was used to
delimit the output of its children, in this case the name and the
label tags. Either way would be fine with me, but I just need to know
which is the way I should implement it. Currently it inherits the
using of the delimiter between the children, not just only between the
output from multiple variables.

Thanks,

Johan

PS I’m away this weekend, so although I’ve sent a bunch of mails now,
I won’t get to reply until after the weekend probably.Op 11 apr 2008, om 10:11 heeft Julian Onions het volgende geschreven:

I’m not entirely sure what the delimeter on names does. I have a hazy
memory that it is actually used if you specify multiple variables, and
so is redundant here.
So if you had

you would get the delimiter between them.
