I was intrigued: So I copied your header and typed a few words. I
went TeXShop 2.38 > Typeset > TeX and DVI and then hit Typeset on
the source page and got back my few words duly stamped DRAFT April 9,
I am running gwTeX under 10.4.11 and did not download anything .
However, once upon a time, I installed TeXLive 2008 which, however, I
am not using. So, whatever package did the job must have been part of
TeXLive 2008. If someone can tell me how to get the package, I can
send it to you.
