I've further discovered that it's not even a matter of cutting &
pasting/yanking. If I simply enter C-q 5 5 4 2 RETURN in *.el and again in *scratch*, this results in a different character in each buffer, the
*.el file getting it wrong (which is the kern of the problem).

Emacs Lisp files are usually kep in some ISO Latin. If you want to enter the GREEK SMALL LETTER BETA, U+03B2, i.e. ``β´´ (and not the German LATIN SMALL LETTER SHARP S, U+00DF, i.e. ``ß´´), you should add this as the first line of your ~/.emacs file (more variables possible):

        ;;; -*- mode: Emacs-Lisp; coding: utf-8-unix; -*-

First open the file as usual, then add the new line as first line (or enter them as local variables at the file's end), and finally save as utf-8.
