Yes, that was wrong, latin1, latin9, utf8... are right encodings.

I would use
Now ---you might be using TeXShop as your editor, I guess; so, you
have to be sure TeXShop is using the same encoding you're telling
LaTeX to use: go to TeXShop -> Preferences ->Document tab -> Encoding
(lower right corner) and select in the pull-down menu the encoding
you plan to use. I've suggested above utf8, so it would be ``Unicode
(UTF-8)'', but if you prefer latin1, select ``Western (ISO Latin 1)''.
Restart TeXShop and try again.
There is also a TeX on Mac OS X mailing list:
if you want to join.
