Several citations in one bracket

Hi there,

I have a question regarding the appearance of the citations in the text when using the IEEE numerical order template. When i have to cite more than one source of consecutive order it is no problem to generate the following appearance:


Is it possible to generate the following appearance if theres more than two consecutive sources?


Also instead of for example [2,3,4,5,10] it should look like [2-5,10].

Can something like that be done by editing the XSL file?

No. See for the full explaination.

Of course, you can easily write a macro which does this in a postprocessing step. Just go over every citation field and process its contents.
