in reply to parsing a bibliography

Not a solution, but if you plan on a lot of work involving bibliographies, you might want to read up on the 'bib' form used by LaTeX (read up on LaTeX while you're at it). I keep my citations in this form (there is even an editor that make initial entry trivial---WinEdt) and adding references to a document with that as a base is quite simple.
