Well, looking at the file EncodingSupport.m in TeXShop's source code  
it seems there is no provision for Windows Latin 1 encoding in  
TeXShop's editor, and only the 24 encodings appearing in the pull- 
down menu are available.

However there exists indeed a corresponding string  
NSWindowsCP1252StringEncoding in Apple's Cocoa API <http:// 
CJBIAHGF>, which seems to indicate it should be possible to modify  
EncodingSupport.m to add this encoding to TeXShop. I won't venture  
into recompilation though.

It would be nice to have a modifiable list of recognized encodings,  
as in TextEdit (at Preferences > Open and Save > Plain text file  
encoding), or maybe to have TeXShop inherit its list of encodings  
from TexEdit.
