Jacques, if you succeed to update PGF, you would need the latest  
version of XeTeX, i.e. 0.995. At least on the Mac, because only this  
version brings xdvipdfmx to the Mac (if you don't want to fetch  
sources with svn, then compile, and hopefully install).

The invocation of xetex or xelatex would be:

	xetex -output-driver='xdvipdfmx -q -E'
	xelatex -output-driver='xdvipdfmx -q -E'

If you prefer to work with TeXShop on the Mac, you might consider to  
create new TeXShop engines for this new XeTeX mode.

No change to PATH is needed.



If my theory of relativity is proven successful, Germany will claim  
me as a German, and France will declare that I am a citizen of the  
world. Should my theory prove untrue, France will say that I am a  
German, and Germany will declare that I am a Jew.
