               charset: unicode (Unicode (ISO10646))
               charset: eight-bit (Raw bytes 128-255)

I see. Thanks.

I can copy-and-paste the entire *Help* buffer for \200 unicode.
Then when I try to do the same to \200 eight-bit I experience unexpected

-- A

1. goto *scratch* buffer
2. C-h b
3. goto *Help* buffer

-- B

1. search for 'self' in *Help* buffer
2. C-u C-x = ,apply to unicode \200 under SPC 
3. C-x h ,highlight all
4. M-w ,copy highlight region
5. C-y ,paste to *scratch* buffer is OK
6. do some random copy-and-paste in *scratch* buffer and elsewhere

-- C

1. goto to last *Help* buffer (= C-h b)
2. C-u C-x = ,apply to \200 eight-bit
3. C-x h ,highlight all
4. M-w ,copy highlight region
5. C-y ,paste to *scratch* buffer is FAILS
   (it seems to be a one-off issue, the penultimate copy-and-paste operation 

For me I experience the same fail to copy-and-paste behavior on
26.2 RC1, 26.1.92, 26.1-mac-7.4.
