    I'm trying a small subset of MacTeX, called BaseTeX with TeXShop on Lion 10.7.4

    It got problem with unicode content although it can do the job with regular English and Math...

    Wonder if anyone have such experience or solutions? Below is the error when compiling a sample tex file provided in the documentation BaseTeX.pdf shipped with BaseTeX:

    (/usr/local/texlive/2011basic/texmf-dist/tex/latex/euenc/eu1lmr.fd)kpathsea: Invalid fontname `[lmroman10-regular]', contains '['

    /usr/local/texlive/2011basic/texmf-dist/tex/latex/base/fontenc.sty:100: Font EU

    ? s
    OK, entering scrollmode...

    ) (/usr/local/texlive/2011basic/texmf-dist/tex/xelatex/xunicode/xunicode.sty)


    No file BaseTex1.aux.

    (./BaseTex1.aux) )
    (see the transcript file for additional information)
    Output written on BaseTex1.pdf (1 page).
    SyncTeX written on BaseTex1.synctex.gz.
    Transcript written on BaseTex1.log.

    =========== Somebody said this is due to the missing of Latin Modern fonts, but after installed the fonts, the errors are still there

    It appears that your answer has been given in response to your post at LaTeX Community. My advice to you is to install the complete MacTeX system. Your concerns about its consuming 1.8 GB notwithstanding. 1.8 GB is a trivial amount of hard drive capacity for today's computers. When it avoids the kinds of problems that you are having, installing the complete system is a no-brainer.
