I did confess ignorance at the outset, didn’t I? 8-)

Thanks. What confused me was that on my Mac the icon for the setuptex  
changed after I edited it.

Anyway, the revised setuptex works perfectly with the  
ConTeXtMinimals.engine. Thank you again.

But the question now is, which solution do you recommend? As a user,  
my preference is for the one that leaves setuptex alone and focuses on  
the engines that TeXShop uses, since it makes switching form MKII to  
MKIV very easy to do. (I would add that, as things stand now, I also  
have easy access to my Texlive 2007 setup.) However, I am much more  
interested in keeping my setup in line with development path that you,  
Hans, and the others set for the minimals, since, as I gather, they  
are the future of ConTeXt.

Very best, Alan
