    Control of PST subfields displaying in Web

    How can we control the subfields which display for the PST field in the Web Full, GUI Full, Web Brief, or GUI Brief?

    As described in the "How To Change Bib Info Displays" document, what fields display in the Web (or GUI) Full is controlled by the field's entry in the ./xxx01/tab/edit_doc_999.eng. (The ones with "W" at the end of the line are for Web Full; the ones with "G", for GUI.)

    What subfields from that field display (whether PST or any other field) is controlled by the edit_field ID (column 6) in edit_doc_999. The PST needs to have an "L" in this column to be linkable.

    So then it's the edit_field: 1 L PST.. L .. line which controls which subfields from the PST are included.

    For the Web Brief, it's column 8 in the ./xxx01/tab/www_tab_short.eng which specifies the edit_field ID. For the PST, it should be "L".

    For the GUI Brief, the edit_field ID "S" is automatically used, so it's the 1 L PST.. S .. entry in edit_field.eng which controls the display (when PST is included in the pc_tab_short.eng table).
