I'm finally making the transition to
biblatex. This is a remarkable package, and has allowed me to cut out quite a bit of old code I used to use to handle eprints, DOIs, crossref mapping problems, etc. Wow!
One challenge is that I am less sure how to "fine-tune" the results of the system. One recent issue that has come up is how to handle overfull bibliography items. Consider the following example, typeset by
biblatex/pdfLaTeX in the middle of a bibliography:
This seems to be a challenge: I don't have "direct" control of the typesetting--as I understand, it is produced on-the-fly by macros applied to the .bbl file. To make matters worse, it seems like the right solution is to fiddle with
biblatex's DOI code, which seems very intimidating.
My favorite solution would be a way to have
biblatex break this DOI in the middle. No one's going to read it anyhow. Is this possible?
Failing that, I suppose I could manually edit the .bbl and add
\tolerance changes right before this entry, but it seems this would have to be done each time I compile the file.
Any suggestions very appreciated.
