I think, the guys here are using LaTeX, me too. And at my experience  
comparing LaTeX and Pages shows that BibDesk/Pages is more complicated  
than BibDesk/LaTeX.

Maybe. But did they compare it with LaTeX?

Yes. And this is good to know.

Yes. This was great. And I am thankfull to James for it. His answer  
was a good guidance to decide to not longer experimentalize with  
BibDesk/Pages at the moment until Apple has enhanced Pages'  
AppleScript abilities.
