I'm sorry to ask what I'm sure is an elementary question, but how can I
make a bibliography in vacouver style look like:

1 Smith A Bloggs B , Gnat sizes, Journal of Gnats...

rather than

[1] Smith A Bloggs ...

I can't seem to find this anywhere in the LaTeX Book or LaTeX companion,

latex makebst

doesn't seeem to offer the option of making a .bst file with this option.

I'm sorry, I feel sure I must be being incredibly stupid but Ive spent a
whole day trying to do this, so I'm clearly reading something wrongly.

What would be really really great would be if someone had a .bst file for
the BMJ series of journals (actually I want Journal of Epidemiology and
Community Health, but I'm hoping that all the journals in this series have
the same style). I can't find anything on the archive.

Thank you ver much and apologies for an almost certainly elementary
