<x-flowed iso-8859-1>Hello,

I am just starting a migration to osx and possibly texshop...
Clearly this programme has potential.  However while its editor
is so limited, I continue to type in alpha --- and hopefully
alpha goes x before too long.  Now what is very annoying about
this combination is that texshop when it imports a source file,
changes the modification date, and if the file comes from os9:
zaps its resource fork.  In fact, whoever created the tex file:
compiling it is supposed to be an act of reading, not editing,
so it should never be allowed to change anything...
