I browsed through the mailing list to see that bibliographies are not
that easy. ;-)

I think I found a solution by providing a "year" in my database. That's
good enough for me.

But as I collect my internet citations with zotero I always get a
urldate for all internet entries. I think that giving the urldate is
better than insert a publication year as nobody knows how long a website
was present and when it was published for the first time.

Is it possible to insert something like "last accessed on the internet
on YYYY-MM-DD" in that field automatically if no publication year is
provided but a urldate?
