Did you have a look at RefDB (http://refdb.sourceforge.net)? This app
uses bibliographic references stored in a SQL database and automates
the entire bibliography creation process, including the formatting
according to publisher's specifications. Works with DocBook SGML and
XML (both DSSSL and XSL) as well as with TEI XML/XSL.

In order to control the text represented the reference and to have it consistent through all the document I used to use "xreflabel" attribute of <biblioentry> and fill it with some symbolic abbreviation of the publication name or similar. I was said, and agreed that simpler number references will look better (in form of [1], [2] etc). Is there any way with jade and DSSSL to further automatize the process, such that the numbers would be generated automatically, according the sequential number of the publication's <biblioentry> element in the <bibliography> element, instead of just changing symbolic references to numbers and then supporting the right sequence manually?
