Chris, Bruno, Herb,

Thanks for your responses. Just back from Don Giovanni. Lots of 
shadows there the better to set off the divine music.

So I just got round to download and try out TS v2.15 and while I was 
at it I also upgraded Keynote to v4.03. Then I tried the copy and 
paste and... it didn't work! I was flabbergasted. At my wits end. OK 
I had some wine in the interval but still...

But then it came to me in a flash, the document I was using for this 
test was a Beamer one, and some themes there do set a background, 
albeit it didn't show in mine. So I tried a plain LaTeX file and, hey 
presto it worked! Back to Beamer, set the background to transparent 
(\setbeamercolor{background canvas}{bg=} if anyone is interested) 
typeset again, output looks the same, copy and paste, voila  works 
like charm.

Thanks Dick for fixing it in v2.15. I am happy again.
