# Biblatex italicizes @MISC entries

I made my bibliography using Biblatex:

\usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex}


and it works fine except that all of the @MISC entries, which I use to cite websites, are all italicized. This would have been fine, except that the URLs cited are italicized as well, which looks horrible. Is there a simple way (package options?) to make Biblatex stop italicizing the entire entry?

Minimal Working Example:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex}
\begin{document}
Cite Book, \cite{Book}

Cite Misc, \cite{Misc}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


The file Bibliography.bib contains:

@book{Book,
author    = {Author},
title     = {Title},
publisher = {Publisher},
year      = {2014},
}

@misc{Misc,
title = {Title'' by Author (\url{http://tex.stackexchange.com/})}
}


The above produces:

I would like the entire of citation [2] to be \upshape.

Edit:

Thanks to musicman's suggestion I managed to make the URLs print upright using:

\appto{\biburlsetup}{\renewcommand*{\UrlFont}{\upshape\ttfamily}}


But it still clashes with the rest of the bibliography @MISC entry, which is italicized. Is there a way to make the whole thing not italicized?

I have also tried

\appto{\bibfont}{\upshape}


and also

\renewcommand{\bibfont}{\upshape}


But neither have any effect.

Possible Solution:

The crux of being able to make the URLs print upright seems to be the manipulation of \UrlFont:

\renewcommand*{\UrlFont}{\upshape\ttfamily}


However I cannot find \UrlFont inside the Biblatex documentation. Could there be a similar hidden command that controls the bibliography entry's font?

Thanks, that helped a bit; please see the edited question. –  Herng Yi Apr 29 at 13:25
Please provide a minimal working example (MWE) showing the document class and other relevant material so we can reproduce your described behaviour. –  Andrew Swann Apr 29 at 13:47
It would help a lot, if you could tell us which parts you don't want to be italic. –  musicman Apr 29 at 13:54
I've added an MWE and described which parts I don't want to be italicized. –  Herng Yi Apr 29 at 14:05

Why do you write all data in the field title?

@misc{Misc, title = {Title'' by Author (\url{http://tex.stackexchange.com/})} }

Split it up like your other bib-entry:

@misc{something,
title = {Title},
author = {author},
url = {http://text.stackexchange.com}
}


\DeclareFieldFormat{title}{\mkbibquote{#1}}


If you want to format the title for the @misc-type only, you write:

\DeclareFieldFormat[misc]{title}{\mkbibquote{#1}}


Also consider to switch to biber-backend.

You are misusing the bibfields for the @Misc. Putting everything in title means that it gets italicised. You should really be using title, author and url.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[backend=bibtex]{biblatex}
\begin{document}
Cite Book, \cite{Book}

Cite Misc, \cite{Misc}

Cite Misc2, \cite{Misc2}
\printbibliography
\end{document}


with Bibliography.bib

@Book{Book,
author =   {Author},
title =    {Title},
publisher =    {Publisher},
year =     2014
}

@Misc{Misc,
title =    {Title},
author =   {Author},
url =      {http://tex.stackexchange.com/}
}

@Misc{Misc2,
note =     {Title'' by Author
(\url{http://tex.stackexchange.com/})}
}


If you really want to force the formatting, you can use note instead of title, as in the Misc2 example above, but I would not recommend that.
