That was a little Gem!! I had been searching through the paper
documentation for a number of Wolfram advertised features of Mathematica
4 to no avail. Did I miss something pushing me in that direction? I
notice NOW that nearly all of the TeXSave Documentation is in
"Additional Information".

A note added to the Using Online Help of the Getting Started booklet
might be useful.

Slightly frustrated with 4.0 but getting less so!
