Well, that worked perfectly, so I returned with eager anticipation to
Xcode and TeXworks -- and got the same warning and four errors. If I
knew how to do do a hollow laugh, I'd do one now... 8>}
I'm going to leave this until Monday: All of this has taken place at
work at the AMS, so when I return to work on Monday -- all rejuvenated
-- I'll try to nail this down.
It's odd: compiling TeXworks on Ubuntu was a snap, but with the Mac OS
it is a real challenge. Go figure.
Thanks so much for all your help and time -- maybe, just maybe, I'll
get the hang of this...
