References in LaTeX

A quick LaTeX-tip on the authors field in an item in a bibtex-file. You should always use spaces in
between initials, so e.g.

author = "C. R. Traas and H. G. ter Morsche and R. M. J. van Damme",

If you do not include the spaces, bibtex thinks the first author has first name "C.R." rather than understanding that you mean he has initials "C" and "R".

This makes a difference depending on which bibliography style you use.
