I use pdflatex most of the time but sometimes need latex->dvips-
>ps2pdf (TeX+Ghostscript) if the file contains lots of eps graphics
and xelatex for files where I want to use Mac fonts directly. In
addition I use the (pdf/xe)latexmk engines when I need bibliography,
cross-references, etc., resolved since those automatically run the
multiple passes, bibtex, makeindex, etc., the correct number of times.
It is MUCH easier to put the
%%!TEX TS-program = ...
line at the beginning of the file and have TeXShop choose the correct
engine than hve to manually choose it if it's not the default set in
