Yes, as I mentioned in an earlier posting in this thread.  :-)

It does surprise me that Emacs does not open the file in UTF-8
when I have specified that my preference is UTF-8.  There are
ambigueties when detecting the coding system used in a text file,
but when I have set the preference to UTF-8, I think Emacs should
try that first.
