Here is the relevant part of the preamble:


I have a huszak.bst file in the same directory as the document.

I compile the document like this:

xelatex doc.tex
bibtex doc
xelatex doc.tex

bibtex's output is:

This is BibTeX, Version 0.99c (TeX Live 2009/Debian)
The top-level auxiliary file: doc.aux
The style file: biblatex.bst
Database file #1: doc-blx.bib
Database file #2: doc.bib.bib
Biblatex version: 0.8i

It uses biblatex.bst as the style. I can set anything for \bibstyle, no error will be generated. It completely ignores it. What am I doing wrong?


You are using biblatex. All formatting of your bibliography will be done by that package using LaTeX syntax. The bibtex-binary is only used for sorting your entries.


biblatex always use only biblatex.bst. Styles are set through options style, bibstyle and citestyle which loads bbx and cbx-files which contain the definitions. (\bibstyle isn't the correct command anyway, it should be \bibliographystyle).
