Right.  So, I think that C-x RET c big5 RET C-x C-f /tmp/somefile RET
would visit the file in the manner you want.  And then, if you were
using Emacs 20, you could try to save the file in the same coding
system and then Emacs would highlight the characters that aren't
encodable.

But with Emacs 21, some Lisp is require that searches for characters
not encodable in coding system X.
