Hello,

If you want to edit the file in TeXShop:

1. Download and install LyX. (It's just a drag and drop installation).

     The download is linked from:

     http://wiki.lyx.org/pmwiki.php/LyX/Mac

2. Open the LyX file someone sent to you.

3. Export it as a LaTeX file.

4. Open the exported file in TeXShop.

LyX is actually pretty neat. I find it a bit ponderous to use for  
daily work, but it is good for setting up preambles for things I  
don't have the time to learn, such as using the bookman font or  
setting up custom-sized paper, then exporting to LaTeX.

Take care,

Bob Kerstetter
