I do, yes. There wasn't a problem to be solved. :) My format looks like

    <div class="book">
        <span class="title"> Foo </span>

BibTeX has

        title = { Foo }

Looks rather similar. But I didn't design it that way consciously because of
BibTeX - I designed it that way because it seemed to be the simplest and most
obvious way of doing it. Perhaps the authors of BibTeX thought so too. :)

In related wibbling, I can see an opening for the four lusers of the
Apocalypse... "I didn't change anything", "My e-mail doesn't work",
"I can't print" and "Is the network broken?".
