Diacritic/accent marks not outputting in citations

Dec 4, 2013 at 8:29 PM
I'm using a Harvard-type BibWord stylesheet to edit an article which has French sources.
Diacritic marks output fine in the bibliography, but do not in the citations.

This is what I get:

(Bacqué, 2005)

Bacqué, M.-H. 2005. Conclusion – La Démocratie Participative, Modèles et Enjeux. In Bacqué M.-H. and Rey, H. (eds.). In: Gestion de proximité et démocratie participative. Paris: La découverte. pp. 293-307.

How do I get the citations to output diacritics the same way that the bibliography does?

Advice will be greatly appreciated!

For those interested in using BibWord to process citations in various forms, the problem which I experienced in outputting citations with diacritics has been resolved. (Seven alternative forms of citation are available by suppressing combinations of citation elements.)

I started by copying the <!-- Formats the citation > coding section from the Chicago Footnotes xsl and pasting it into a Harvard-type xsl. This worked, but the citations did not handle author names with diacritic letters (although the Bibliography output did).

A line-by-line comparison showed that one line of relevant code was missing in the original <!-- Formats the citation > coding section in the Chicago Footnotes xsl:

<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"></meta>

Once this is inserted in my combined Harvard-type xsl, the citations do output diacritics.

The relevant section should read:
<!-- Formats the citation. --> <xsl:template name="format-citation">
<!-- Generate an XML node-set from the formatting data. -->
<xsl:variable name="params" select="msxsl:node-set($data)"/>
<html xmlns="">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8"></meta>

I hope this will help those who may be interested.
