Lisa,

	Don't know if this will help, but here is a schematic of what I did 
for an article recently accepted at an Elsevier journal.  Although I 
didn't use BibDesk, I did manage the .bib file separately (in BBEdit).  
I have already sent back the page proofs with some minor revisions;  I 
never had to place the contents of any .bbl file into my document, nor 
muck around with any .aux files.  Everything just worked as "usual" in 
TeXShop....  HTH.
