How can I convince amsrefs to use in one biblist the alphabetic style and in another biblist the numeric style?

  • This has become a RFE on amsrefs by now, I guess. It may be useful for people looking for this, too. – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Jan 21 '11 at 21:25

For what it's worth, I managed to do this by saying


right before the second biblist.

Later: Changing other of the formatting options would be nice, too, by the way. For example, the second biblist should use only initials, and that is more annoying to do: one has to copy all of this code:

  +{}{\IfEmptyBibField{initials}{}{ }}{surname}
    +{}{ }{jr}
    +{}{ }{initials}
    +{} {}  {surname}
    +{,}{ } {initials}
    +{,}{ } {jr}

and using the nobysame option amounts to saying


As of version 2.12 of 2013/01/15, amsrefs.sty's biblist environment takes an optional argument allowing to change the label style locally, so this is now the canonical solution.
