Actually you can just export a text file and do copy/paste in a text editor.
EndNote's labels causes BibDesk to choke, because they default to the
publisher name, but you'll have to change them to your liking anyhow.

My knock against BibDesk is that you can't download info directly into the
program from the web. Can you do this with Bookends? If so, which? ISI web
of science (from the makers of EndNote) is excellent!

Any more input on any of these programs?
