Dr. Murray,

Upon following your instructions I again get the following error:

[localhost:~] zdavis% pdflatex Untitled 3.tex
This is pdfTeX, Version 3.14159-13d (Web2C 7.3.1)
! I can't find file `Untitled'.
<*> Untitled
              3.tex
Please type another input file name:

What if you don't have any spaces in the name? Uses dashes or underscores.

Do *not* use space characters in file-names.
This has nothing to do with the platform that you are using
 --- TeX does not allow it.

Hope this helps,

Ahh yes...that is my problem--sorry for bothering you all--serious case
of TeX newbie disorder...he he he.  Now, does the teTex distribution
contain all the fonts one would possibly use, or do I need to worry
about installing others?  Additionally, is BBedit something to look
into, or do most TexShop users find the included editor adequate?

Thanks,

TeTeX has all the standard tex fonts.  As for the TeXShop editor I think
its fine but editors are a pretty personal thing.
