Speaking of which ... I tried to view TeX files I had already created 
with TeXShop with BBEdit. BBEdit did not recognize the line endings. 
They were replaced with some special character that just showed up as a 
rectangle. The same character was inserted at a few other places, which 
made it difficult to fix the problem with search&replace. Also, their 
was additional white space inserted at some places ...

Playing with the options in the Open dialog in BBEdit did not help 
(selecting an encoding, checking/unchecking translate line breaks).

Does anybody know what is going wrong and how to fix this?
