I'm on a Mac, too.
I use TextWrangler (free edition of BBedit, http://www.barebones.com/ 
products/textwrangler/download.shtml), there you can open (and re- 
open) a file in different encodings - i.e. open a UTF encoded file as  
ISO-Latin-1, enable "show invisibles" and you can see the whole cruft.
Or look at a hex dump.

I know no other editor (with a GUI, not vi or emacs) that makes  
encoding changes so easy! It can even point you at the characters  
that don't fit into some encoding into that you tried to save.

Greetlings from Lake Constance!
