He may be, but does Smultron preview within source, or split the pdf  
view? I have an older version, and there's not even a compile option I  
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.

As always, trying a number of different options is a good idea, but  
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
