    I am looking at buying iWork, to replace MS office (I have considered openoffice/neooffice, but have had nothing but irritation from them) on my MacBook. However I have one very important question before I commit to buying this;

    I am a 2nd year marine biology student, and as such I write a lot of essays, papers and proposals, all of which need Harvard referencing in full.

    Does Pages in iWork '09 support this at all? MS Word has a built in citation manager which is ideal for this, and I know that a great deal of Apple's userbase are students, so I would presume so, however, I know not to presume that just because a function is useful and obvious that it will be present in something designed by Apple every time.

    Wow. Just wow. An extra £155 program to do something that my £35 copy of Office does out of the box.

    Never mind, I guess I'll just stick with the jarring problems of Office for now
