As I said, I took an already prepared book, and our TeXpert doesn't type 
everything in a single tex document, but rather uses \input to include 
everything from frontmatter to backmatter. So to answer your question I 
opened a single chapter (92 KB) and measured the time it took TeXShop 
1.2  to do its syntax coloring --more than 3 minutes. But I also noticed 
that if I start typing at the end of the document (scrolling works fine) 
syntax coloring starts without delay, even if surrounding commands are 
not colored until 3 minutes later.

About character rendition --it seems to work just fine, though I'm not a 
fast typist.

I have no idea. I think this is for Mr. Richard Koch to answer. (But, 
have you verified your Disk Permissions with Disk Utility?)

The August2002DevToolsUpdate.dmg is 9.9 MB.
