[OS X TeX] Typesetting info for TeXShop 2.01 documents

Starting to use TeXShop (now 2.01) on Tiger, I'm seeing the following.

The syntax for the typesetting infos at the beginning of TeXShop  
document has changed. However, the instructions at <http:// 
www.uoregon.edu/~koch/texshop/changes.html> or in the included file  
IMPORTANT_README are partly erroneous, in that,  for XeLaTeX, the  
original syntax:

     %&encoding=UTF-8 Unicode


     %!TEX TS-program = xelatex
     %!TEX encoding = UTF-8Unicode


- The space before the "=" in the first line is mandatory (otherwise  
the default pdfeTeX is used). The instructions include this, but the  
mandatory character of the space isn't mentioned.

- There is no space between UTF-8 and Unicode on the second line  
(otherwise the input encoding is considered to be TeXShop's default;  
generally MacOS Roman). The instructions include one.

Hope this helps,
