that helped a lot. Thank you for that. Allow me one follow-up:
I wanted to get a dvi file instead of the usual pdf output. I thought
that switching in TexShop from PdfTex to Tex & Ghostscript (and maybe
additionally checking the "save as ps" box in the preferences) would
get me there. It did not and also invoking LaTex (actually XeLaTex in
this case) from command line did not help. Am I missing the obvious?
