What does the field contain?
Items in a DBI file that:
  • have a storycode which starts with one of the autostoryitemstarts, and
  • have a storycode that is "compatible" to the issuecode,
are regarded a "storyitem".

All lines in the file w.dbi that start with a 'W' are automatically considered storyitems.

NOTE: items in a DBI file that:
  • have a storycode which starts with Q + countrycode + /, and
  • have a storycode that is "compatible" to the issuecode,
are also regarded a "storyitem", even if this is not mentioned in autostoryitemstarts.

About storyitems, see also the DBI field storyitem.
