I throught that Will's macros use the bullet character as a marker  
(so they can be ``found'' using some macros put together a while  
ago). I never understood why things you quoted in your inclusions had  
substituted the ``closed apple'' character for the bullet. Is there  
something in your setup that is changing the encoding of the  
characters? What is your default file encoding in TeXShop?

Good Luck,
