Default Windows True Type on Mac OSX

So I'm working on this Quark 6.5 document that uses a font called Officina Sans ITC TT Book and it's a Windows True Type Font (TTF). I am working on Mac OSX.

If I make a text box and insert text "Option + u" and press "o", I get ö in Helvtica. When I change to my Windows TTF font, it changes to some S looking thing. So my question is, when you use a Windows TTF font, does it retain the Windows coding, therefore jacking up ALL of your accent marks and special characters?

Is there any way to change this back to a Mac encoding?
