After looking at the encoding options in TeXShop, I think the correct 
incantation to include in the file is
	%&encoding=UTF-8 Unicode
rather than just

Don't know if it's case sensitive, but that's the name used in the 
Preferences dialog, and I believe the %&encoding line is supposed to 
use those same names. So that might be why it didn't seem to work.
