alignment left

Apr 14, 2009 at 12:12 PM
Hi there,

I have got a problem with the alignment of the column 2 using table style bibliographies. all of my styles use halign=left but the column is always formatted with justify. I guess there might be a problem about the bibliography-style, but looking in word it tells me, the bibliography table is formatted in standard, not in bibliography. Where do I have to change my settings to get alignment left in the table? I really have no more ideas.

Thanks a lot for any help!

Basically, the layout in HTML for a table in BibWord is:

<table>
  <
tr>
    <
td align="$HALIGN" valign="$VALIGN">
      <
p class="MsoBibliograpy">text first column</p>
    </
td>
    <
td align="$HALIGN" valign="$VALIGN">
      <
p class="MsoBibliograpy">text second column</p>
   
</td>
  </
tr>
</table>

The halign and valign parameters in BibWord are for the table cell properties. They only indirectly affect the text within a cell. To set the text alignment within a cell the MsoBibliography style (shown in Word as a localized version of the word 'Bibliography') should be used.

If your bibliography is not in the 'Bibliography' style, then something is wrong.

Which style (or BibWord version) are you using?

What happens if you switch the reference style to APA (the one available in Word by default)? Is the style of the bibliography still 'Normal'? Or is it 'Bibliography' now?

thanks for this fast answer.

I use a style I prepared myself. If I use APA, the bibliography-style in Word is used. The BibWord-Style used is 2008.7.30.

Probably I did some wreck to the style right at the beginning. But where do I have to search for the error to switch back to the correct word-style?

Thanks for your help!!!

You are using a very old version of BibWord (1.0). A lot of bugs have been fixed since. I suggest you update to the latest version (2.3) which you can find at http://bibliography.codeplex.com/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=23850

All you have to do is copy the "data" element (<xsl:variable name="data">...</xsl:variable>) from your current style to the new one. The formatting should be exactly the same. There just are a lot of bugs fixed and more formatting options for those who need them.

Let me know if that fixes things.

Thanks a lot!!! I already downloaded it, but did not update my xml-file. I will report as soon as I've changed to the new version. This will be next week, though, because I have to attend a conference the rest of the week and won't be able to get online.

thank you again

Claudia
