Not completely sure what you're trying to do but there is a nice macro  
that allows you to easily find and read included (sty, cls, tex) files  
easily. Select the file name in your source and execute the macro; it  
guesses the extension from the enclosing command and uses kpsewhich to  
find and open the file. The macro, written by Mathew Hills, is called  
Open Selection.  You can get it, and other TeXShop goodies, as part of  
TeXShopKit.zip from <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2/>.

Good Luck,
