As long as you use a Latin encoding this should not make any problems 
(as long as the editor on the other system is able to open a file in 
the encoding you are using, but Latin1 will be available everywhere).
The best solution of course was to use UTF/Unicode in the first place, 
which will probably work nicely on the Mac side, but you might run into 
problems with windows editors not being able to open UTF files.
