This is very cool, thanks!

What is the intended meaning of the repeating "@uri =
http://unalog.com" here?  Is it intended to be the identifier for the
entry?  I'm asking because there is a URI of sorts embedded in the
COinS for each entry (see span[@class.contains(Z3988)]).

Over on gcs-pcs-list we've been talking about a simplification of the
COinS spec when simply indicating what-the-identifier-is, which is
(obviously) rather lost inside the OpenURL ContextObject inside the
span.  Lately we've considered instead just using "class='uri'" and a
URI in a title or as the textnode content.  I'm experimenting with
something like this in the canary database as well.

All of which brings me back to the question of clarifying where the
identifiers are...
