Re. Makefiles in TeXShop: now it works perfectly, many thanks for all 
the advise I received.

Now that I have gotten TeXShop up and running I want to consider using 
an external editor. I have been using emacs and vim for quite a while 
but that piece of software is maybe /Lisp is/ getting a bit old these 
days? ;-))

So I wonder if there is some suggested editor for TeXShop. A feature I 
really would appreciate is grammar check and spelling/thesaurus inside 
my TeX code. Other features are of course syntax highlighting, 
bracketing, indentation of TeX code, and auto-completion of standard 
\-definitions and even recurring words such as "automobile" from 

(In fact Eclipse is a very nice development platform, but I doubt it 
will work with TeXShop. This is a shame since Eclipse supports modules 
such as CVS. However I heard someone is thinking of implementing a 
LaTeX module for Eclipse.)
