I know this is an old thread; please forgive my returning to it. I've 
been out of the country and am just now catching up on my TeX  on Mac 
OS X digests. I would like to add one further note to Kyle's remarks. 
To generate a bibtex database one "scans" the document: BookEnds looks 
for the \cite commands and labels and puts together the .bib document 
and the bibliography. However, if you print the bibliography Bookends 
converts your \cite commands and labels into bracketed footnote 
numbers. The only way to avoid this is not to print the bibliography. 
Leave it in the clipboard and then paste. Am I right about this, Kyle?
