Your needs are quite different from mine. Once I have an acceptable document
it's done.

I was thinking of compiling to .tex, modifying the bibliography dashes in
page numbers (which apparently is the issue between lyx and kbibtex for some
reason), then running it through again to produce the desired .pdf.

But, if lyx automatically uses utf8, and so does kbibtex I need to find why
they can't politely talk to each other.
