I've attached an example MS document with a few comments, and the
resulting postscript.

In a separate file, are the refer entries which must be run past
"indxbib" to create the necessary file used by refer.

I run "indxbib" as follows:

        indxbib -iW -l2 -orefer text_file_of_references

where "refer" is the resulting database that the "refer"
processor uses.  I've dropped "W" so those entries (if any in the
file "text_file_of_references") are not indexed.  I've also
discarded keys shorter than 2 characters because some of my
references are 2 character names.

Hope that this helps.
