Correct. The difficulty here is the mac PostScript fonts are in Mac
encoding---for TeXshop have you tried declaring Mac as the input
encoding? You'll also have to get the encoding specification right
wherever it is you specify the fonts.

>(ii) The use of some specific Mac fonts with Tetex.

Yes, this last is a bear. I actually found it easier to run Mac OS 7.5.5
in Basilisk in Virtual PC so as to use TeX/GX than wrestle with it
