I see. Thanks for the info. I'm pretty ignorant about this stuff.

I see this in emacs -Q (on MS Windows), however, so I wonder if it isn't a bug.

And I wonder how you can see it as being UTF-8 encoded - are you using emacs -Q?

I don't see any local-variable thingy that would specify that the file is to be
UTF-8 encoded.
