I must be missing something obvious: I've tried to set BBEdit as my 
external editor, but it doesn't work. I looked through the TeXShop help 
file, but the section on external editors was unenlightening. The above 
sequence of commands  accomplishes nothing on my machine. I'm running 
OS X 10.2.1, TeXShop 1.20, and BBEdit 6.5.3 on a Pismo (PB G3 FW).
