YES *ashamed*!

yes, after some tweaking i now get numbered citations etc. and even  
URLs. using hyperref aswel, so this should all be fine. looks like  
that now:


%blabla.. all the rest goes here


As you can see, i set some otions for the natbib-package, but i am  
still unable to get brackets (square) around the numbers. i get  
something like this:

[1] blabla

in the reference list, but at the place where the \cite{bla} inserts  
the reference number, i only get a plain number in superscript,  
without brackets. the number look in b/w-print just like footnotes,  
which is kind of bad :) is there any way to tweak the natbib-package  
further? i have seen it using other sytles without natbib...

something else: the reference list only includes items that were  
actually referenced in the document through some sort of \citeX{} -  
is it possible to print all items that are in the bib-file per  
default and still correctly reference them? is it the indexing-thing  
or is that something else? :)) "citation indexing" in google only  
leads to more or less strange results that don't help me at all...

thank you, martin

... maybe next answer i will redirect to the OS X TeX -list, might be  
more appropriate over there... sorry
