Note that the Apple tech note referenced in the wiki entry ignores ignores a
number of details that would be useful for newbies: the correct format for
multiple paths associated with one variable name, how to get the Property
List Editor or other editing environment to find/open the .MacOSX directory,
and so on. There are also several utilities that can be helpful, such as the
RCEnvironment prefpane for viewing and setting environment variables, BBEdit
for opening and editing hidden directories/files and OnyX for revealing
hidden directories/files so that any editor can be used.
I added comments about these to the wiki entry. It would probably be a good
idea of someone knowledgeable checked my edit to make sure it's entirely
