I think you need to install from your Mac OS X CDs or DVD those 
extra-European fonts that you want to see. The Additional Fonts package 
has Arabic, Hebrew, and Cyrillic plus some Indics. The Additional Asian 
Fonts package has those Far Eastern CJK fonts. Next thing is that 
you'll have to set your keyboard layout to a language that supports the 
script you want to type in. It's OK to set in TeXShop's preferences 
UTF-8 as default encoding, but not the MacOSX UTF encoding. It will 
make your TeX files Mac OS X only. And of course you'll have to decide 
which font you use to type the text. ⌘k opens the fonts chooser.
