TomColvin:
A couple months back, I ran into a brief review about Scribus, a word processor for the Mac, with powerful bibliographic and note-taking capabilities. Sounds too good to be true.  I've put a brief reference to it on my blog.  So far, though, I've found no one who uses it.

It was mentioned in the following thread (started last October but still receiving comments last week):

and also in the DC newsletter at:

Not sure if this is the same Scribus or not though? You didn't give a link so there may be another application called Scribus for the Mac that is totally unrelated.

TomColvin:
Opps, just realized the MAC software I really meant to mention is called Scrivener, reviewed at 43 Folders back on January 21:

I'm beginning to learn my way around the Forum -- will search back threads.  There's enough back there to keep my busy for weeks!

a word of warning (!) the forum search is pretty much a waste of time (imo) -
if you use Firefox there's a very good search plugin

if no FF you can download a file with, well, all the posts which you can then index and search.

There is a way to use google to search the forums only but I'm not too sure on that

Find relevant Links in Lanux128's signature!!

Thanks, Tom, for the FireFox plug-in hint.  It's installed.  Apparently the MAC word processor Scrivener has never been discussed here.
