Any chance of you posting that DTD (or a link to it) to this list, so that I
can have a look at it?

Hardly - this is an extremely nasty problem. If your Word bibliography is
in plain text, then it will prove almost impossible to separate out the
different components of each reference in any automated manner. My first
approach would be to save as text and write a Perl script that separates
each entry by commas - this might speed up the process but would probably
fail for multiple authors and journals.

Not much help at all really.
