Thank you all for the suggestions about how to create a zip file with  
no Mac staff in it.

With Gary's help, I could even download Piontek's Create Clean  
archive, but I could not follow the installation instructions. Maybe  
if I had more time...

Then it occurred to me to check Stuffit. Low and behold, in  
Preferences, choose the Compression tab, then choose the Zip tab.


Preserve Mac Content

and checkmark

Ignore Finder Desktop Files

This is all nicely explained in the help file (search for invisible  

Then Zip-ping a folder eliminates the desktop file(s) and all the forks.

Next time Reiner Schopf will be happier with me when I upload to CTAN  
(not that he complained -- he is one of the good guys).
