in reply to parsing a bibliography

Hi

Looking at what you have, it's going to be difficult. I thought about splitting on periods, but then initials and abbreviations start to mess you up.

Is it possible that there is more information in the Word Doc? For example, is the title in italics, and if so, can you somehow highlight that information when extracting to your plaintext?

WIth that information, you might be able to get author; title; location, publisher, date.
