I had a problem with Gnu Emacs apparently not being able to cope with
UTF 8 coding. After much frustration the answer I seemed to get is
that Gnu Emacs doesn't support UTF 8 for Japanese codes. Is this right
or wrong? If right, why? If wrong, what can I do to make it save files
in UTF 8?

If so, how comes I can send you this post from emacs, but not from ときお?

I have no idea. I can type in a very simple sentence in Japanese, try to save it as utf-8, and get an error message, and insist that I save it as euc-jp or other. I looked at Google for what might happen, and the impression was that it just didn't support utf-8 properly.

I'm feeling weak after this.

Another one: I put the input method editor for Gnome in today, and it started trapping ctrl - space, so every time I tried to "set mark", which I do about a hundred times without thinking about it, Gnome caught it and Emacs didn't realise. Then I did ctrl - w and deleted everything in the file over and over. I found I could do it with ctrl - @ but I don't want to do it, so then I had to turn Gnome's thing off again.

Also Gnome doesn't talk to Emacs, it seems.
