It's discussed in Apple's developer docs on UTIs.

Open your file as utf-8 in TextEdit, then save it as utf-8 from  

Alternately, try this in Terminal:

xattr -w com.apple.TextEncoding 'UTF-8;134217984' file.tex

which will set the encoding extended attribute to UTF-8.  I added  
support for this in BibDesk yesterday, which should make opening .bib  
files in TextEdit work reliably.
