The original thread (and thus the `utf-8' in the subject header) was
about emacs `not recognizing utf-8 files,' and the message made it clear
that it was non-CJK utf-8 files that were being talked about (and that
emacs could read them correctly with a bit of assistance).

You then recommended that he use `TEI emacs,' and I asked how they did
a better job of auto-recognition.

You then said `when doing mail in Emacs (21.2), there was never any
automatic recognition of any kinds of non-Western encoding' -- no
mention of utf-8, and as far as I could see, the topic was about
encoding recognition in general, not specifically about utf-8
(the `any kinds of non-Western encoding' being a prime reason for this
-- there are things besides utf-8...).

Only later did you make a post which made it clear that you were talking
about CJK utf-8 support (which indeed emacs does not currently have).

A hint for using netnews:  Topics drift, and subject headers are often
inaccurate in followup postings (and so people tend to disregard them).
