Oh, yes, thanks, I had forgotten that I already know it. It certainly 
would do what I am asking, and a few other very useful tasks related to 
BibTeX, provided I knew how to install it. It's strange that in the 
documentation it does not mention that it can be installed in MacOS X. 
Since it is a UN*X program it's probably possible, but unfortunately, 
its installation process is beyond my computer literacy level...

Any experience with it as a "normal" Mac user ?
