Once again showing my ignorance

It seems there are several approaches to protecting a file on OS X... does anyone have any favorite, lightweight approaches?

I put mine in a password protected disk image -- but that might not be what you mean by lightweight.

Having never done that it doesn't sound lightweight, but who knows?

Any other, lighter-weight ideas?

See http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1578 for the GUI approach, or "hdiutil create -help" using the CLI.
