Thanks. I didn't know about the single-quoted text. Now I need to get
the formatting to work. barcode/biblio prints the text too low and it
writes over the barcode and biblio/barcode makes the barcode too short
on the y-axis. It makes plenty of room for text, but I'd rather have a
bigger target for the barcode reader.
