Yes I understand, simply I always work with utf8 : html, css, tex and sty and cls files. 

Sometimes (often) somebody send me a file with latin1 encoding and with
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc},  so in this case, I prefer change \usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
 with \usepackage[utf8]{inputenc} and I save the file with utf8 encoding. 

Now I don't understand why texshop is by default with applemac

OS X like Ubuntu  and Windows 7 are write with unicode. By default on linux now
 the files are in utf8. apple.com is write with utf8

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml" xml:lang="en-US" lang="en-US">
	<meta http-equiv="content-type" content="text/html; charset=utf-8" />

All the great sites are now build with utf8

XeTeX logically is build to use utf8, luatex too

 so it's harmful to keep on editing with applemac or latin1.

But this is personal and it's my point of view and I understand that
 a lot of people prefers to continue with the same encoding to  avoid problem.
