Has anybody ever constructed a bibliography style template which does something like the following (this is one of the main styles used in cultural anthropology):


Adam, Heribert, Frederik van Zyl Slabbert, and Kogila Moodley
     1998 Comrades in Business: Post-Liberation Politics in South Africa. Cape Town: Tafelberg.
         Andrews, Edmund L.

That's not doable with the current implementation of BibWord. You could design such a style from scratch though.

One thing to keep in mind is that Word currently uses XSLT 1.0. Hence, useful XSLT 2.0 features like for-each-group are not available by default. Of course there are always workarounds, but they might be tricky to implement if you don't have an above average knowledge of XSLT.

Thanks, I rather wait then till a future version of Word makes it possible more easily...
