Maybe this is another Leopard thang, I dunno, I haven't set up my test
stack for this yet, but in Tiger I can't get Text Edit to open a PDF in
any meaningful way; that is, it just shows the raw PDF data but doesn't
So my question is whether TextEdit renders PDFs normally in Leopard, or
if the behavior is the same as under Tiger then how does the "launch"
command differ from dropping a file on the app's Dock icon?
