Control of PST subfields displaying in Web

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

Resolution:
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).
