I believe that TeXShop, and probably the default in OS X, uses Unix  
line endings (LF) and not the old (CR) line endings.

As long as you only use ascii text (e.g., only macros for accented  
character) the encoding shouldn't be a problem. If you embed accented  
characters directly you probably want to use something like ISO Latin  
1 encoding which means you should put

%!TEX encoding = IsoLatin

near the top of your TeXShop file BEFORE saving it for the first time  
(or do a Save As... and choose ISO Latin) and add the line


in the preamble.

Good Luck,
