	You can probably do the following in Alpha as well, but since I know 
BBEdit/TextWrangler:  Download a (free) copy of TextWrangler, open your 
file, choose "Zap Gremlins..." (under Text menu) and delete all three 
types of characters shown.  Then choose "Save As..." and click the 
"Options..." button.  Make the Line Breaks "Unix" and the Encoding 
"Western (Mac OS Roman)".  Save your file and repeat your steps above 
(deleting .aux files, etc.).  If you still have the same problems, then 
the file format is almost certainly not the problem -- more likely a 
misplaced brace or other character as Herb suggested earlier.

	To further echo the advice of Herb:  "Good luck!"
