You can change the default encoding in TeXShop to `Western (ISO Latin1)' in TeXshop->Preferences->Source->Encoding. Alternatively you can place the line

%%!TEX encoding = IsoLatin

near the top of your Source file. That tells TeXshop to open the file (and Save the file) using Latin1 encoding.

Good Luck,
