Eric: I had the idea that maybe we can create a comprehensive bibliography here. Then, within a page when you want to provide a reference you can simply provide a link to this page with an anchor placed at the appropriate article. Html anchors work on the nLab, right? What do you think?
Toby: That's a good idea! References like ‘Bat3’ are really not going to work, however; we could try APA-style ‘Batanin 2003’ (although that will also be ambiguous sometimes). Of course, anything on the arXiv has a unique identifier …. I'll see what I can do about getting anchors on this page so that we can test it out.
Eric: I think Bruce figured it out on that recent conference page. Found it
Oberwolfach Workshop, June 2009 -- Strings, Fields, Topology
Eric: Oh! Oh! Can we do a redirect to an anchor??? For example, have Goldblatt1984 redirect to [[Bibliography#Goldblatt1984]]? Or something…
Toby: Not with the current software. But we can add redirect commands (not just anchors) to each entry and then trust that, when people click on ‘Goldblatt1984’ and arrive at this page, they'll have the sense to search the page for ‘Goldblatt1984’. (Also, check out the Sandbox now.)
Eric: Nice. I like what you did in the Sandbox. Now all we need is a standardized bib reference and can think about encouraging others to use this method.
Toby: Yes, for instance we need to decide whether the standard has a space or not. (I like a space, although it's true that it makes hand-crafted URIs trickier. Although we might be able to get Jacques to fix that.)

Eric: There is probably a better solution, but the asterisks below are to ensure that this page is long enough that links to specific references work, e.g. if the reference is at the bottom of the page, the anchor may not work as desired.
Toby: Some browsers do this right; they put extra space at the bottom if needed.
