TeXShop switched to a new syntax for specifying the engine and  
encoding. Details are there <http://www.uoregon.edu/~koch/texshop/ 
changes.html> (see "New features in 2.00 and 1.37"). You've got to  
(1) set in TexShop the default encoding to UTF-8, (2) open you input  
file -- the characters should now display correctly --, (3) change  
the first two lines in your input file, (4) save and close it, (5)  
set back the default encoding in TeXShop to its original setting, (6)  
reopen your input file -- it should now display correctly.
