Chris, William, Wendy & Guido
many thanks for your input!

I included all the necessary *.sty and *.bst files and still get the very
same error message from the PDF build process as before:

This is TeXk, Version 3.141592 (Web2c 7.5.2) (format=tex 2005.3.22) 25 OCT
2007 09:13

[rest snipped]

*** (job aborted, no legal \end found)
No pages of output.

The document typesets fine on my local machine, either generating the
included files or telling me that the very same file already exists on my

So I assume that Chris' suspicion was right, that they indeed seem to use
TeX to typeset the document instead of LaTeX.

After failing to upload the PDF of the manuscript instead of the *.tex
source yesterday a couple of times, it magically worked today... What can
I say...

Again, thanks for all your input.
