+      <h2>MacOS X Emacs hints</h2>
+        <p>Assuming you have an installation of Isabelle on your Mac,
+        there are various possibilites for running ProofGeneral:</p>
+        <ul>
+            <li>You should also be able to launch <a href=
+                "">Proof General</a> by typing
+                <tt class="shellcmd">Isabelle</tt> at the Unix command line. This will invoke the
+                Apple-supplied version of Emacs in a terminal window, providing a primitive
+                environment.</li>
+            <li>Somewhat better is to run Proof General from within a version
+                of Emacs ported as a native Mac OS X application, such as <a href=
+                "">MacEmacs JP</a> or
+                <a href="">mindlube's</a> or <a href=
+                "">Enhanced Carbon Emacs</a>.
+                Visiting a theory file from Emacs will automatically launch Proof General
+                provided <tt class="shellcmd">isabelle</tt> is on the search path. None of these options
+                support the X-Symbol package, unfortunately.</li>
+            <li>In order to get the full benefit of Proof General, you must install the X
+              Window System (X11) and <a href="">XEmacs</a> or
+              <a href="">GNU Emacs</a>.</li>
+              <ul>
+                <li>
+                    <a href="">apple's version of X11</a>
+                    is included with the Panther (MacOS X 10.3) installation discs, though it is
+                    not installed by default. The Command key serves as Meta, but it is
+                    reserved for standard Apple shortcuts such as C, V and X, so you must use
+                    Esc-C, Esc-V and Esc-X in Emacs or else deselect &raquo;Enable key equivalents&laquo;
+                    in the X11 preferences.</li>
+                <li>The easiest way to install XEmacs or GNU Emacs is via the package manager
+                  <a href="">Fink</a>. Install the Fink package
+                  <tt>xemacs-sumo-pkg</tt> to get the XEmacs libraries that Proof General needs
+                  to run. To install GNU Emacs, install the package <tt>emacs21</tt>. Fink can
+                  compile from sources, but this takes hours, so it is better to request binary
+                  installations.</li>
+                <li>To use <a href="">GNU
+                  Emacs</a> instead of <a href="">XEmacs</a>, you must
+                  recompile Proof General and X-Symbol following the instructions <a href=
+                  "">here</a>. Note that Proof General
+                  incorporates its own copy of X-Symbol.</li>
+              </ul>
+        </ul>
+        <p>You may want to install this drag-and-drop <a href=
+        "//dist/misc/isabelle_droplet.dmg">Isabelle launcher</a>. It is a simple hack that
+        invokes XEmacs on any files dropped on it.</p>
+        <p>Here is a <a href=
+        "//dist/img/screenshot_isabelle_macos.gif">screenshot</a> showing Proof General running
+        in GNU Emacs.</p>
