Hi all,

I think that we have to be careful to now emphasise too much about the "BibTeX
format".  Many of the entries that Andreas corrected, I pasted the from the
BibTeX references provided by the publisher...

For the page separator, if this is already parsed at buildtime on the tasks
page, how about displaying it as Unicode double dash (–).  This is what is
intended in TeX by the double ASCII dash (--).

Have a nice day,
