I use biblatex and biber for the bibliography and I came to the problem that I need a subset of the bibliography to be in verbose style (all authors for 5 references) and at another place in the document I need all entries as compressed as possible (about 200-300 references).
So I currently I employed
maxnames=1. The drawback is that the
maxnames options are global only options since biblatex 1.6. (Currently I use biblatex 1.7)
So how do I render a subset in verbose style and the rest in compressed style?
