Ok, here follow my preamble:
\usepackage[fleqn]{amsmath} % math environments and more by the AMS
\usepackage{geometry}                % See geometry.pdf to learn the  
layout options. There are lots.
\geometry{letterpaper}                   % ... or a4paper or a5paper  
or ...
%\geometry{landscape}                % Activate for for rotated page  
%\usepackage[parfill]{parskip}    % Activate to begin paragraphs with  
an empty line rather than an indent
\renewcommand*\familydefault{\sfdefault} %% Only if the base font of  
the document is to be sans serif
\DeclareGraphicsRule{.tif}{png}{.png}{`convert #1 `dirname #1`/ 
`basename #1 .tif`.png}
% \fontfamily{phv}\selectfont

I configure TexShop to use utf-8 encoding, but for example when I  
paste the code here in the mail message it transforms \ to ¥, than I  
have to fix it.

I supposedly saving my tex files in utf-8.
