(1) Thanks an enormous lot.
(2) It actually worked.
(3) I had seen the mention of a terminal but had no idea what it was nor
that there was one on Panther. /Where could I learn about what it tells
me./
For instance, about half of the picts were translated into eps and for
the other ones, it said

Calling ImageMagick to convert figure to EPS...
convert: Unexpected end-of-file (/Users/alainschremmer/Desktop/10
OMTo/v1-5-4-Part2Fig21.pict).
* Figure conversion to EPS failed! Is ImageMagick installed?

TeXshop's console said there was an error on the boldfaced line

\begin{figure}[htbp]
\begin{center}
* \includegraphics[width=4.250in,
height=0.764in]{v1-5-4-Part2Fig1.pict}*
\end{center}
\end{figure}

Thanks again
Regards
