From the page "<cite> is used to add a link to the reference in the <biblio> section. It simply contains a list of keys that will be automatically replaced by a number which matches the order in which they are cited." - However this seems broken. Certain other 'advanced' features of the extension also seem broken or unclear. --Dan 12:10, 24 September 2008 (EDT)

  • Bill Flanagan ( at MIT) 11:52, 28 May 2010 (EDT): The Biblio extension instance used on this site has been fixed to handle Pubmed citations correctly. The problem is related to the character encoding of the content returned from Pubmed. The character set was not being recognized and a bad translation table was being used.

To fix this problem, the Biblio extension didn't need to be changed but the NuSoap library does need to be updated to correctly handle the case of an unlabeled content section. In addition to this I also needed to recompile PHP to enable multibyte character sets.

I'll provide a new Biblio release that includes the modified NuSoap library when the NuSoap team provides guidance as to whether we need to modify and provide out own or whether a new release will be distributed to handle this. I'm also looking into NCBI to see what made this happen now.
