TeXShop displays CJK characters fine, using the fonts included with  
Mac OS X. I'm not sure how well it would work with non-Unicode  
encodings, though; I guess you'd have to explicitly set the encoding  
of the source file (see Preferences and check the Help). If you have  
the encoding set to MacOS Roman or something like that, then it'll  
certainly have trouble.

A Unicode Chinese document in TeXShop typesets fine through XeTeX (or  
XeLaTeX) with no special effort; just choose one of the Unicode- 
compliant Chinese fonts included with Mac OS X; no need for special  
packages to support different encodings, etc., it "just works".
