Right, I'm slowly getting to grips with this.  So far, I've discovered that table names/column names should be enclosed in back ticks not double quote characters and that SQLite AUTOINCREMENT =  mySQL AUTO_INCREMENT.  Weems like all my tables are being created once I make those changes.  Next step will be try INSERTing data.

If you copy/paste the sequel to create the table into the query browser, you will get a red X to the left of the offending line, and the part that is wrong will be in another color than the "good" sql. It's pretty easy to see or determine at that point what the problem is. I would think just about any SQL tool would have some kind of feature like this.

I was hoping I could export the db structure using the Firefox SQLite manager and then import the resulting file with the SequelPro Import feature but I get a host of syntax error messages when I do the import.  The error messages are pretty useless because they are just generalised messages like"Syntax error near xyz, refer to your mySQL manual".  I think almost all of them are something to with either PRIMARY KEY or foreign key definitions specified with the REFERENCES keyword but haven't tracked down just what the problem is yet.
