SeqApp for Macintoshes, the new release 1.9a, can deal with GCG's MSF
format, including dashes.
Find it as ftp.bio.indiana.edu:/molbio/seqapp/*.hqx
SeqApp can also do the aligning (by hand and automatically via clustal)
in a manner that is at least roughly as good as GCG's pileup + lineup.
SeqApp has a pretty print output of aligned sequences that lets you
shade similar bases, or do your own shading. You can export this
alignment display as a Mac PICT file for further editing in your
favorite PICTure editor. SeqApp is also free.
