Hi, John.

As you're on a mac, you're probably cut/pasting from your mail client
into your editor of choice (TeXShop? iTeXMac?). Most likely that client
is saving your source file in Mac encoding. Therefore, you should be using:
Instead of win or il1. 

Hope that solves the A-macron problem, at least.
