what is implicated here though..I don't know XeLaTeX (these things are
getting harder to type...). will Gerben's setup choke on this or is
saving those files at UTF-8 tantamount to switching? (Can I still use
TeXShop? etc...)

is there a good reference  point (eg web page) for these questions and
all the onse I haven't thought of that you (or anyone else) knows?
thanks (as ever...)
