I use TextMate/MultiMarkdown for pretty much all my writing, and just  
did a clean install of Leopard. I installed the attached bundle and  
set the TM_MULTIMARKDOWN_PATH variable, and all seems to be working as  
expected, though I don't use the math stuff and only very basic LaTeX  
documents. Anyway, no problems to report so far.

And thanks to all who have made this writing environment possible!
