Thanks for the code! Made it possible to quickly adapt for "Humana Press" citation style.
You can download the xsl file here: Humana.XSL
This will produce something like the following,
citations in text:

(1), (2)

Bibliography list:

1.         Miller, J. F. (1961) Immunological function of the thymus Lancet 2, 748-9.

2.         Thomas, R. A., Landing, B. H., and Wells, T. R. (1987) Embryologic and other developmental considerations of thirty-eight possible variants of the DiGeorge anomaly Am J Med Genet Suppl 3, 43-66.

Hello,
 
I would be glad to put up the style in the list currently maintained here. However, I have one problem with it.
 
You say this is the style used by "The New England Journal of Medicine". However, if you take a look at the webpage of the journal, and more specifically at http://authors.nejm.org/help/NewMs.asp#jstyle, you will see that your style is totally different from theirs. I checked one of the articles on the main page (http://content.nejm.org/cgi/content/full/359/21/2208) and noticed that they do use the style described on the other page. 
 
As far as I can tell, the journal uses the Vancouver citation style of which you can already find a limited implementation on the project page (I'm working on a better version). So, I'm guessing your style actually has a different name and is for a different journal.

On a side note, I couldn't get the file directly from the link, I had to go to the main page and browse to it from there for some reason.

Hi Yves, you were absolutely right - got the specifications from "Humana Press" and they described it as New England J. of M. style, but clearly it is not. So I have changed the headline - link also works now.
You don't have to add it to your main package (which is great) as this style is probably used only by few people.

I did upload the style to http://www.codeplex.com/bibliography/Release/ProjectReleases.aspx?ReleaseId=19809 .

Note that I fixed two minor issues I encountered in your version:
   1)In-text citations should not only be in bold, they should also be in italics.
   2)As in-text citations are independently outputted, your usage of the bold tags around the outer brackets does not work if you combine multiple sources (1,2,3)

Regards,

Yves
