[OS X TeX] Unicode and TexShop, iTexMac

Hi all,
Having recently decided to "waste" time banging my head on unicode and 
tex (and some perl to go back and forth between the two; unsuccessfull 
until now --perl newbie--, so if someone has an idea, please share), I 
did reformat one Sanskrit text from the normal TeX format to using 
directly letters with diacriticals (ie \={a} to ā etc).
I had to do this in TextEdit as neither TeXShop or iTeXMac do display 
properly UTF-8, nor give the option to use UTF-8. They do compile 
properly the text though.
Why is that so, and are there plans to bring UTF-8 support to these 
editors? Is it still too much of a mess at the moment?
