There is a work around. Press Cmd-Shift-Right (or Left) Arrow. This
will select everything from the cursor to the end (beginning) of the
line. Be careful here and press Left (Right) Arrow before anything
else or you'll replace the selection with whatever you type.

This is standard OS behavior. I find the best way to select a large
region is to place the cursor at one end of the selection and Shift-
Click at the other end of the selection. Also standard OS behavior.

There are many keyboard options built into Apple's text Framework;
some of which are already active but many of which aren't bound to any
keystrokes. It is possible to enable many of these and assign them to
keystrokes (even multi-keystrokes, e.g., Ctl-x Ctl-x). These
keystrokes will be active in all applications that use Apple's
Framework; e.g., TeXShop, TextEdit, Mail. You can get more information
and a set I use as KeyBindings.zip at <http://homepage.mac.com/herbs2>.
