Emacs is too flexible! Pay attention to the modeline. There, at the 
left edge, the encoding of a buffer is listed. Make it equal to that in 
TeXShop etc and see what comes out. Ahem, probably an encoding ending 
in '-unix' (line endings) should be chosen. It's later better to work 
with these files' contents in Terminal.

Which Emacs are you using? How do you manage to copy texts?

I found when copying between buffers in GNU Emacs 21.3 under X11 via 
mouse selections that umlauts where converted to four character sets à 
la '\374'.

(Shouldn't we open a Mac OS X Emacs list?)
