[OS X TeX] Updated QuickLook generator for TeXShop 3.14 documents.

After installing TS 3.14 on my MacBook Pro running OS 10.8.3, the new TeX icons looked great but, as others have reported, QuickLook did not display *.tex documents (QL displayed everything else normally). So I installed Herb's QLColorCode.qlgenerator in ~/Library/QuickLook (which was empty) and rebooted. 

Now QL displays my *.tex documents with color coding but not the new *.tex document icon. Instead, the icon displayed for *.tex documents is a Numbers icon with the word TEX at the bottom.

Has anybody encountered this? Any suggestions?

I've ``hacked'' the original generator to work with TeXShop 3.14. You can download the `hacked' version as QLColorCode.qlgenerator.zip from my download site, <https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/10932738/index.html>. Simply unzip, replace the original version with the new one (I had mine in ~/Library/QuickLook) and re=boot your system.
