	I think that some OS X programs save files with with either the
file type as "????" or as blank.  I would hope that TeXShop would at least
save them as file type TEXT, but I guess it doesn't.

	Perhaps Excalibur should also check for any .tex or .txt extension?
Or be able to drag and drop for any type of file?  Or for "????"/blank file
