just downloaded BiBDesk for my next paper... Unfortunately it will be  
a mixture of Russian, German and English, so it will have to be  
unicode :) Therefore as usual: XeTeX. Anyone here using this setup?  
Does the preview feature work for you? It seems to me, that i can't  
get the paths right :/ Also i got errors because of the automatic  
conversion of accents into TeX - disabled it, thinking unicode/XeTeX  
will handle it anyway - my assumption right? I would greatly  
appreciate some hints on using BiBTeX/Desk, since i never did it  
before - not even with non-Unicode :)
I also searched vor some russian document classes, like KOMA for  
german - though couldn't find any. I'm sure Russia has some special  
conventions for university papers and scientific stuff in general,  
too - does anyone know? How about the BiBTeX style? My Professor is a  
big MS Office fan and doesn't know anything about TeX... Last week i  
introduced him to eagle3d and POVray stuff and he was very  
impressed... very weird. In some respects you find leading technology  
in Russia, in other respects they work like 1990... errrm... Sorry  
for the off-topic-excurs into russian society :)
