Thanks for the recommendation, Fredrik.

I thought I might mention the link to BibDesk: 

I've heard from a few users who used EndNote to export into bibtex and 
then switched to using just BibDesk, and I don't know of any major 
problems with that. (Does anyone want to enlighten me about what data 
you might lose in exporting into bibtex from EndNote?)

As an aside, I try to be very receptive to user suggestions - many of 
the new features in the last two versions are directly taken from 
suggestions, so keep that in mind if you find that nothing quite fits 
the bill.
