Sorry to mention TEI-Emacs again, but its superior ability to identify
document encodings (especially Unicode) is one of things that I
like best about it.

I had also tried these strategies, and they will allow you to edit a
document as UTF-8, but AFAICT they don't solve the problem of having Emacs
recognize these encodings automatically.
