Hi, all,

I just want to tie off this loose end, and leave some useful  
information for posterity.  I was having problems with 'wrapfig' (as  
a suggested alternative to 'floatflt'; see the thread "Floatflt  
question" for details).  Wrapfig's author, Donald Arseneau, took a  
look at my problem, and diagnosed it as follows:

Both alternatives work for me, with both latex and pdflatex, as well  
as with TeXShop (Mac OS X).
