Thanks, I'm giving it a try.  Looks like it's more or less working.

By the way, on the subject of the virtue of code examples...  if
I'd just given that a try on my own, I might very well tried a
quoted string first:

  (prefer-coding-system "utf-8")

I would then have been very puzzled by this error message:

  error: Invalid coding system `utf-8'
