What remains is the problem with emacs and UTF-8 files.

I have GNU Emacs 21.3.50 from CVS in rare use too. It has no problems to open an actual UTF-8 file in UTF-8 or an ISO Latin-1 file in ISO Latin-1. Although it has problems to show most of the >100K glyphs in Unicode, but that's a secondary problem to deal with in elaborate fontsets.

Such a header line helps Emacs:

        ;;; -*- mode: Text; coding: utf-8; -*-

(The first three `;´ are three comment characters.) Or such a footer:

        % Local Variables:
        % mode: LaTeX
        % fill-column: 160
        % coding-system: iso-latin-1
        % End:

(The `%´ introduces a comment in TeX.)

And yes, I meant and I wrote C-x RET r. Usually I first view a file's contents and judge then if I need to change the encoding Emacs uses by default.

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
