Bibliographical software is essential for educational applications, because it lets you organize references and build bibliographies used in publications. Among many available bibliographical software packages, the following three packages are most popular: BibTeX, Reference Manager and EndNotes. There is growing interest in bibliographies stored in XML, which can be manipulated with generic software, for example to render them in HTML or PDF. This paper describes grammar descriptions that specify the structure of the XML file related to these packages. It also presents a program, which faithfully converts the BibTeX files to XML.
