    Starting A Document

    OK, I'm trying to type up a file for some homework, but when I export it to a PDF all I get is nothing but the commands (i.e. no symbols or anything).

    I'm in Mac OS X, and have the package MacTeX downloaded. Am I missing something in my "usepackage" statement? I just typed \usepackage{mactex}, is this wrong?

    Help!

    Did you write \begin{document} and \end{document} ? \documentclass{article} ? \usepackage{geometry} ? \geometry{a4paper} ?

    Here's sort of what it looks like:

    \documentclass{article}
    \usepackage{mactex}
    \begin{document}
    .
    .
    .
    \end{document}
