Alpha will save with whatever line endings you tell it to. For use with 
unix tools like BibTeX, you'll want unix line endings. Open your .bib 
file in Alpha and look on the status bar for the button that says 
"Mac". Click on it and select "UNIX". Resave your file.

No, UTF-8 encoding means 8-bit unicode. Alpha only saves in MacRoman.

The Mac carriage returns most likely *are* the special characters that 
are causing you problems.
