This would be GREAT!

I have not gotten beyond the edit and typeset stage yet (though I did  
test putting in ! - XeTeX and font directives once ...)

a) TeXShop --- for about one year or so, coming in from OzTeX and an  
(at that time) very outdated MacOS9 system

b) TeX/LaTeX --- started with it back in about 1987 (on a Vax system  
I believe it was). I consider myself a moderately skilled user who  
occasionally looks in awe at the pros whizzing around on the black  
marked slopes but realizes he's just as happy with the occasional  
foray into the blue levels :-)
