There are many people on this list who can give more authoritative answers
to these questions, but since this is an area that I have done a bit of work
with, I will mention a couple of points, which you can regard as a sort of
The basic answer is quite clearly *yes*, as TEI has paid great attention to
the development of bibliographical frameworks. The P4 document has an area
that talks about bibliographies, and if you look at the reference tag
documentation, or the TEI2 DTD itself, you will find most of what you need
by starting with the <bibl> and <biblStruct> elements.
<bibl> allows for more freely structured bibliographies, while <biblStruct>
(which I have been using in all of my manuscripts for over a year now) will
create a constrained structure bibliography, which can be readily rendered
into any standard publisher's bibliography format with style sheets.
I developed a DTD for doing <biblStruct>-based bibliography documents, which
I will attach here, along with a sample bibliography. Hope this helps.
