OK, I must be doing something stupid. I tried the %!TEX method and it  
doesn't work for some reason. The root and chapter files are in the  
same directory, so I just said %!TEX root=QEAP.tex  (QEAP.tex is my  
root file) in the top line of a chapter file (I threw away  
the .texshop file). It now insists on ignoring the root file and  
typesetting the chapter file alone. What have I done wrong? (I assume  
I don't need the .texshop file since some "preprocessor" is parsing  
the %!TEX construction).
