 You should use the same encoding for your document and the LyX output 
 encoding. A workaround is to use LaTeX markup in the .bib file so that 
 it is compatible with any encoding.

I would recommend LaTeX markup (the LICR encoding) as the most stable and
save way to represent non-ASCII characters in a *.bib file.

In the above case, it would be Karol .{Z}yczkowski. 

Some BibTeX-Managers allow to determine the encoding of the bib file and
will do the conversion for you.

Also LyX (usually)¹ does a good job in converting Unicode to the TeX LICR
encoding when you select DocumentSettingsLanguageEncoding: ASCII
Then you can paste/write offending entries into the main window and see
the translation in ViewSourceLaTeX.

¹ Don't use the LyX translation for Greek and Cyrillic script, as this does
  not use LICR but hard-coded slots in a TeX font encoding. (I am working on
  a patch.)

 Hi Benedict,
 
 I think most developers (of which I am not one) agree that full biblatex
 support would be desirable. However, from what I understand, adding such
 support is not an entirely trivial task, partly because biblatex/biber
 interact with latex in a very different way from bibtex. That does not mean
 you are not welcome to give it a try. In fact, you strongly encouraged to
 do so! There were some discussions of this topic on the lyx-devel list a
 few months ago. You may want to search for those threads to get started.
 
 I also tend to believe that one of the reasons why biblatex support does
 not have a very high priority on the developers' agenda is that the current
 workaround (described in the wiki page you referred to) is good enough for
 a lot of users. It has certainly been good enough for me for a number of
 years. I switched to biblatex/biber to get full unicode support and avoid
 the kind of time-consuming issues discussed in this thread. Once you get
 used to loading biblatex in the preamble (and adding a fake bibtex inset at
 the end) it is smooth sailing. If you tend to work with the same bib files
 all the time (as I do), you may even create a lyx template with the proper
 preamble and bibtex inset and you are done.

Following the wiki instructions doesn't quite work for me.

1. It seems to fail to run biber.  All refs are undefined, and no bibliography 
is output.

If I export lyx-tex and run lualatex, it asks me to run biber.  After manually 
 
running biber, then the bibliography is output.

2. But, in IEEE style, with bibtex, the bib entries use a smaller font, But not 
with biblatex - they seem to use the standard font used in the main material.

1. I would first make sure that you have selected biber as you
bibbliography processor in
DocumentSettingsBibliographyProcessor  (from the drop-down menu
choose biber)

2. Second, make sure that biber can actually find your bib files. Look in
the biber log for an appropriate message (DocumentLaTeX Log, then select
bibtex from the dropdown menu). do you see a message from biber to the
effect that one or more bib files could not be found?
Notice that biblatex requires you to specify the .bib extension in the
\addbibresource command in the preamble. ANd notice that you need to insert
the absolute path to the bib file (in the same command).

3. If biber is selected, and still it is not run by LyX during pdf
generation, I would check what LyX acutally does during such generation.
Choose ViewMessages Pane then click on the settings vertical tab in the
right, choose the selected radio button, and then in the rightmost pane

Then visualize the pdf file as usual and look at which kind of messages you

1. It seems to fail to run biber.  All refs are undefined, and no bibliography 
is output.

If I export lyx->tex and run lualatex, it asks me to run biber.  After manually 
 
running biber, then the bibliography is output.

2. But, in IEEE style, with bibtex, the bib entries use a smaller font, But not 
with biblatex - they seem to use the standard font used in the main material.

1. I would first make sure that you have selected biber as you
bibbliography processor in
Document>>Settings>>Bibliography>>Processor  (from the drop-down menu
choose "biber")

2. Second, make sure that biber can actually find your bib files. Look in
the biber log for an appropriate message (Document>>LaTeX Log, then select
bibtex from the dropdown menu). do you see a message from biber to the
effect that one or more bib files could not be found?
Notice that biblatex requires you to specify the .bib extension in the
\addbibresource command in the preamble. ANd notice that you need to insert
the absolute path to the bib file (in the same command).

3. If biber is selected, and still it is not run by LyX during pdf
generation, I would check what LyX acutally does during such generation.
Choose View>>Messages Pane then click on the "settings" vertical tab in the
right, choose the "selected" radio button, and then in the rightmost pane
("Debug level") double click "LaTeX generation/execution."
Then visualize the pdf file as usual and look at which kind of messages you
get.

Get back to us with the info you get and we'll take it further.

biblatex has a gazillion of options, I am sure there must be one somewhere
that does what you want. But as a quick hack, try the following in your
preamble:

\renewcommand{\bibfont}{\normalfont\small}

1. Thanks!  I had forgotten to select biber as bib processor - now it's working

2. \renewcommand{\bibfont}{\normalfont\small} worked great!  Thanks again.  I 
looked for options, but nothing in 
http://mirror.utexas.edu/ctan/macros/latex/contrib/biblatex-contrib/biblatex-ieee/biblatex-ieee.pdf.
  I'll try contacting the author.

 I think this is a problem with the default configuration, at least on

Hi Benedict,

I think most developers (of which I am not one) agree that full biblatex
support would be desirable. However, from what I understand, adding such
support is not an entirely trivial task, partly because biblatex/biber
interact with latex in a very different way from bibtex. That does not mean
you are not welcome to give it a try. In fact, you strongly encouraged to
do so! There were some discussions of this topic on the lyx-devel list a
few months ago. You may want to search for those threads to get started.

I also tend to believe that one of the reasons why biblatex support does
not have a very high priority on the developers' agenda is that the current
workaround (described in the wiki page you referred to) is good enough for
a lot of users. It has certainly been good enough for me for a number of
years. I switched to biblatex/biber to get full unicode support and avoid
the kind of time-consuming issues discussed in this thread. Once you get
used to loading biblatex in the preamble (and adding a fake bibtex inset at
the end) it is smooth sailing. If you tend to work with the same bib files
all the time (as I do), you may even create a lyx template with the proper
preamble and bibtex inset and you are done.

Cheers,
Stefano

 You should use the same encoding for your document and the LyX output

 You should use the same encoding for your document and the LyX output
 encoding. A workaround is to use LaTeX markup in the .bib file so that it
 is compatible with any encoding.

I think this is a problem with the default configuration, at least on
linux. You really need to use Bibtex8 for the bibliogrophy generation. This
is NOT the default. The default is bibtex which doesn't have any unicode
support because it actually was written in the 1980's. bibtex8 should
really be the default by now on any system. Also the language support in
lyx should default to utf-8. It would make life much easier to not have to
change these around so much and avoid these sorts of bugs. I also should
point out that pdflatex does an excellent job at catching these problems.
XeTex I think uses utf-8 by default which is why it worked when you
switched from pdflatex to XeTex.

I guess, if you take out the ref: Vazquez-Castro, and A.~Morello the error is 
gone. Check carefully the reference, perhaps by adding parts only (eg only the 
first word of the title, journal etc)
