[NTG-context] two problems for bib module

Hi Yanrui,

I'm afraid I can't really help you with your problems; I have just a thought on # 2.: at it's core, bibtex is still a 7-bit application. Development on replacements has begun - there's bibtexu, which is in TL2010, there's biber; none of them is quite mature yet. If memory serves right, Hans said that in the future, he wants to bypass bibtex altogether and develop something of his own. So, long story short: if you use Chinese characters in a .bib file, it's hit-or-miss; it's unreliable and may or may not work. There's nothing ConTeXt can do about that as things stand now.

All best

Thomas
