Please notice that iTeXMac provides support for UTF-8, and all other 
encodings in Mac OS X: there is help available, I hope

  <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple Computer//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" 
<plist version="1.0">
	<string>Mac Roman</string>
	<string>ISO 8859-1</string>
	<string>Windows Latin 1</string>
	<string>Mac Central European Roman</string>

should be saved at

~/Library/Application\ Support/iTeXMac/General/Encodings.plist

If you want i can send this file as an attached document (I think the 
list don't accept attached documents)
