 	After following this thread I got myself a copy of Refs for '95
and have to say that I agree wholeheartedly with the above. I have a 
question though, for any UK users of this package (probably applies to
the Win 3 version too)... how to get the import from BIDS format to work
properly. I've been saving searches in full downloading format, e-mailing
them to myself, saving the mail from pine on our Unix host, then bringing
the saved file across via our Windows network. So far I've not been able
to get Refs to recognise it as a BIDS download.
	Having RTFM I notice that it refers to .isi format, yet I've never
seen an option to specify that when doing a download on BIDS. The solution
is probably trivial, but I can't seem to see it. Any ideas?
