Well, differences can arise because of the preference settings in the  
latex bundle (assuming that they are not overridden by a TeX directive  
at the start of the document) and by using a different engine in  
TeXShop. Check to see if the engine corresponds to your preferences in  
the latex bundle in TM (option command ,). Best, Mark
