Hi Maarten:

Thanks for your answer. It confirmed something I was beginning to
suspect. I tried your suggestion this morning, and I can't even get the
blistering thing to open natbib.bst.

The top-level auxiliary file: template-harv.aux
I couldn't open style file natbib.bst
---line 73 of file template-harv.aux
: \bibstyle{natbib
:                 }

I'm wondering if there isn't something wrong between the elsart class
and the natbib.  Maybe I should haven't tried to fix this before
coffee.
