  4. title: Title of the DNZB entry

  7. authorlink: Title of a Wikipedia article about the author
  8. author: An alternative to last and first
  9. authors: Free-form list of author names

All parameters are optional. title defaults to PAGENAME.

The DNZB biography for James FitzGerald is at http://www.teara.govt.nz/en/biographies/1f9/fitzgerald-james-edward.[1] The id in the URL is '1f9'. The entry was written by W.
