Jonathan, I already installed the XeTeX extension via i-staller. It
was a breeze to install. Now, I would like to ask, In TexShop (v. 2.03
+ Mac X 10.4.2):

TeXShop Preferences -> Typesetting -> Default Command,

if I change from "LaTeX" to "Command Listed Below (XeLaTeX)", do I
have to switch back and forth for non-Chinese documents? Or, the
XeLaTeX supersedes (i.e., encompasses) LaTeX?

I decided to post here, rather than XeTeX forum, since I thought it
relates to the use of TeXShop, and some people here might be
interested as well.
