Pandoc's code for its citation modes is here


And the part that reflects its citation syntax looks to be this:

Here's some pandoc markdown examples:

Blah [see @doeA, pp. 33-35; also @doeB, chap. 1].

Blah [@doeA, pp. 33-35, 38-39 and *passim*].

Blah [@doeA; @doeB].

Blah [-@doeA].

Blah [-@doeA; -@doeB].

Blah [-@doeA; @doeB].

@doeA and -@doeB

When exported to HTML, we get:

Blah (see Doe 2018, 33–35, also 2017, chap. 1).

Blah (Doe 2018, 33–35, 38–39 and passim).

Blah (Doe 2018, 2017).

Blah (2018).

Blah (2018, 2017).

Blah (2018, 2017).

Doe (2018) and (2017)

The second to last one is interesting, because my understanding was
the suppress_author flag applies to the individual cite references,
rather than the complete citation.

But in the rendering, it's clear pandoc (I think appropriately)
applies it to both cites, and so the whole citation.

OK, sounds good.
