bib2xhtml is a program that converts BibTeX files into HTML (specifically, XHTML 1.0). The conversion is mostly done by specialized BibTeX style files, derived from a converted bibliography style template. This ensures that the original BibTeX styles are faithfully reproduced. Some post-processing is performed by Perl code. This is an update of the bib2html program written by David Hull in 1996 and maintained by him until 1998.

Release Notes: This version provides a new -R option that allows you to number entries from bottom to top, adds a -B option that allows you to specify the name or path of the BibTeX executable, creates valid XHTML blockquote elements when producing abstracts, and removes an obsolete (and soon to be deprecated) dependency on ctime.pl.
Release Notes: This version adds an option to highlight a specified author name, improves chronological ordering, adds support for \href appearing in bibliography entries, and fixes a few bugs. In addition, in response to an increased number of invocation options, the project's home page now supports the interactive display of formatting examples.
Release Notes: A new "paragraph" option allows the program to create plain HTML paragraphs, without any bullets or numbering.
Release Notes: Changes were made to make the generated documents pass XHTML validators. Specifically, this version drops the deprecated compact dl attribute and escapes XML-special characters appearing in URLs and DOIs. In addition, the program will operate better when the PDF::API2 module is not available and will correctly handle cross references containing tildes.
Release Notes: This version adds an option for specifying how extended file information is displayed. This can be used for including PDF file icons or providing more descriptive names. In addition, it provides support for counting and listing the number of pages in PDF documents, and documents a previously undocumented option for specifying the file path to URL mappings.
