He may be, but does Smultron preview within source, or split the pdf

can find easily. Heck, while writing this, I downloaded the latest,
and still can't find it. I really don't see the attraction to Smultron
for LaTeX. TeXShop is much better. I don't see where the syntax
highlighting of TeXShop falls short.

Aquamacs does address Alain's immediate desire right now.
He will need Skim installed for previewing a completed PDF unless he
then switches back to TeXShop (or goes through the hassle of setting
TeXShop up as the previewer, which would probably just complicate
