Fantastic (and they almost work)! I am downloading ISI formatted 
references from Web of Science and then converting them to .bib files 
in the following manner:

(1) ./isi2xml ISIformat.txt > pippo.xml

(2) ./xml2bib pippo.xml > pippo.bib

Unfortunately, the .xml file is not properly getting the author names 
and so the .bib file does not have the "and" between the names. For 
example, the ISI authors look like:

AU Costanzo, F
    Gray, GL
    Andia, PC

and then the .xml authors look like:

     <name type="personal">
         <namePart type="given">F</namePart>
         <namePart type="given">Gray,</namePart>
         <namePart type="given">GL</namePart>
         <namePart type="given">Andia,</namePart>
         <namePart type="given">PC</namePart>
         <namePart type="family">Costanzo</namePart>
             <roleTerm authority="marcrelator" 

so that the .bib authors come out as:

AUTHOR="Costanzo, F. Gray GL Andia PC",

which isn't correct (no "and"). Am I doing something wrong?
