Thanks for catching that. It's amazing how many times you can go over a document and still not catch that sort of thing.
> On the second page you are using the term "i86". 32-bit applications for the intel processors have an "i386" architecture while the 64-bit variant is "x86_64". The mix of "i86/ppc" is UB (Universal Binary), as used before for Aquamacs Emacs 2.4. And "Texmaker, the universal LaTeX editor" seems to be correctly written as "Texmaker"…
The i86 designation is what was given on the web site. The i86/ppc designation may very well be that there are separate versions rather than a Universal Binary. I've thought about changing my designation of TeXmaker (or even TeXMaker) but just can't get myself to do it! :-)
