The names of references contain only alphanumeric characters, ending
in a 4-digit year (e.g., ‘smith1998’). When there is more than one
reference of the same name and year a single lowercase letter should
be appended to the name to distinguish between them (e.g., ‘smith1998b’).
In addition to the usual title/author/publication type of information,
suitable for generating HTML, XML or SGML, each reference file can
hold other information, including:
To link to a reference from a Wiki page use, for example, [cowlis2003],
which will appear in the text like this: [cowlis2003]. If a description
is added, the square brackets will be omitted, as is usual in MemoWiki
pages, thus: Here is a sample reference.
References use a simple plain-text markup, with
some special tags identified (such as abstract). Here is the markup used for the [cowlis2003] reference.
In references, Wiki inline markup can be used only in the content
of abstracts, notes, and comments.
