  What ever happened to Omega? That takes Unicode input. 

  And what would need to use OS X system fonts other than a 
previewer, and everyone seems to go right to PDF anyway? I
just recently got TeXshop and teTeX going on OS X, so don't
follow. I guess if you want to send a PDF to a PC user you're
in trouble. But shouldn't/don't Acrobat/preview show you a
MacOS font if you call it "correctly"?
