I am rendering
(Aalto 2015a–e; Bartleby 2010)
for the name_CiteGroupDelimiterWithYearSuffixCollapse2 test but it wants
(Aalto 2015a,b; Bartleby 2010; Aalto 2015c–e)
They differ because I’ve applied cite grouping but the test does not.
Helpfully, the test explains itself:
Cite grouping is applied only if the citations are sorted in some way, otherwise they should be rendered in entry order.
However, that seems to differ from the documentation which says only that
Cite grouping can be activated by setting the
cite-group-delimiterattribute or the
It mentions no need for a
<citation><sort/></citation> element and I can’t think of a reason why that should be required.
It would be an easy change to do what the test wants but I’m curious about the reason and why it isn’t documented.
