Hi Christian,

I submitted one paper to an Elsevier journal last August. I don't  
recall using any *.sty file, theirs or not. The first time I  
submitted, however, their automatic system did not run LaTeX often  
enough and I had unformatted references in the document! I tried  
again 2 days later and it worked...
