One thing to note is that you should either set the default input
encoding (TeXShop->Preferences->Document->Encoding) to UTF-8 Unicode
or Open the documents individually using the Open command or the
input will be assumed to be a default encoding. It's really sad to
see the mess I made of a few files before realizing this; good thing
I had backups.
You can also use a hidden preference for TeXShop so that it will
understand the deprecated style although you should get used to using
the new style since it doesn't interfere with commands understood by
some TeX systems and editors. In Terminal type
defaults write TeXShop UseOldHeadingCommands YES
to get the old (as well as the new) commands recognized by TeXShop.
