Hi to everyone,

I use half whitespaces "\," a lot, as I often use abbreviations. This may cause very ugly code. So I wanted to fold the half whitespaces with the bullet symbol: ∙

But when I try to save the .emacs file, emacs complains that it can't encode the non-latin symbol. How do I make emacs open and save the .emacs file in utf-8? Or is there a better solution? When I choose "Options - Mule - Set coding systems - For saving this buffer - utf-8" and reopen .emacs, some symbols get mixed up, including the bullet symbol.

I find the handling of encoding by emacs a bit confusing...
Is emacs able to choose whether to read a file as utf-8 or normal latin automatically? A short dialogue when saving a buffer the first time (on C-c C-w), asking in which format the file should be written, would be nice, I think.
