Making bibliography styles for Latex

This is actually much easier than I expected.

Open a command prompt and type
latex makebst

this opens a dialog where you fill out a bunch of formatting questions. It creates a .dbj file and ask if you want to run this 'batch job now.' Clicking yes generates the .bst file you'll need for the \bibliographystyle{} command

The output files are in C:\Users\Username
