Sorry for not being clear. I want a place to store my refs, that I can
access (ie both read the refs but also cut'n'paste into Linux/OpenOffice
and Windoze/Word) from several machines (if that means copying the
database about that is okay). also like to be able to save my notes
alongside the author/title/journal etc.
Now looking at Jabref - trying to work out if you can very easily copy
refs into OpenOffice?
