The latest release should run on Leopard as well.

You may use the attached script. Set the ENGINE variable to the path of 
an engine and PDFVIEWER to the path to TeXShop (or some other PDF 
viewer). Then, in Smultron, go to Tools -> Handle Commands -> New 
Command, give it a name, set Interpreter to /usr/bin/ruby and paste the 
script into the bottom part of the window. If you want, you may also 
assign a shortcut to the command.

Or may use TextWrangler (from my home page you may download a syntax 
colouring file and some scripts).
