This is just an untested thought, but it is possible that the accented ‘o’ is being suppressed in the source view by the TeXShop editor.  Two things to try are:
- in TeXShop, Source->Show Invisible Characters might make it show up; or
- in emacs, if you can handle it, you can see everything in the file, so if the character in some form is there, it will show up
