after reading all of your comments, i wanted to find out more about  
the limitations of utf-8 via inputenc. i found that it's not  
mentioned in the documentation generated from inputenc.dtx, but that  
you can generate documentation by running latex on utf8ienc.dtx,  
which can be found on ctan.

the documentation is titled "Providing some UTF-8 support via  
inputenc", so it might be of interest if people encounter characters  
that don't seem to act appropriately.


p.s. i recently switched to textwrangler and i'm very happy with it  
too. it compiles tex with the help of scripts (see f.i. maarten  
sneep's at http://www.nat.vu.nl/~sneep/tex/ or tom kiffe's http:// 
www.kiffe.com/textools.html), it has emacs key bindings, saves and  
opens files via (s)ftp, very nice :)
