The %% are really inconsequential, a single % should work also. That  
line is only understood by TeXShop and is a comment as far as TeX  
processing is concerned. Hopefully, the publisher knows that the  
document is saved with UTF-8 encoding in case they have to manually  
set up the encoding in their editor.
