Perhaps you also know how I can make Emacs open a UTF-8-encoded
file correctly?  In my ~/.emacs I now enabled UTF-8 in every way I
can think of

   (set-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
   (set-clipboard-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
   (set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
   (set-next-selection-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
   (set-selection-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)     
   (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)      
   (set-w32-system-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)    
   (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)

and I have enabled multibyte characters, but still Emacs always
opens a UTF-8 file as "unibyte no-conversion".  Using

   C-x RET c utf-8 RET C-x C-f

to open a file is rather awkward.
