The following structure is in place for encoding
bibitem as YAML objects. The structure has not yet been generalised to
bibdata/ext, the flavour-specific extensions of Relaton.
|Relaton YAML can be used to represent bibliographic entries in Metanorma.|
If an element in Relaton XML has attributes, the content of the element is represented in YAML
<title type="main">Geographic information</title>
title: type: main content: Geographic information
Any elements with a cardinality of many can be represented as arrays, but they can also be populated by a hash or single element. For example, a Relaton title can have multiple titles, and multiple scripts; so the following are equivalent:
title: - type: main content: Geographic information title: type: main content: Geographic information script: - Latn script: Latn
on is a reserved word, and thus cannot be used as a key.
value is used as a synonym for
on in dates.
The structure below is given in YAML format:
