I am pretty sure that Maarten was not referring to the Textmate built  
in viewer (which is, indeed, an HTML viewer), but instead is talking  
about the third party PDFView (see http://pdfview.sourceforge.net/ )  
which has a lot of nice bells and whistles that are absent in both  
the TexShop built-in PDF viewer as well as Preview.app
