Thanks much. FOr some reason I am getting the complaint that my co- 
author sees each paragraph as a long line on his Windows system. I am  
not sure what editor he uses, but I thought I could make it easier by  
inserting hard wraps at wrap points. TextMate has a way of doing this  
manually, but for many projects I prefer to use TeXShop and wondered  
if I could do it within TeXShop.

Thanks again.
