Oliver... Sorry I took so long to reply here.

Since its been so long since this thread was current..  The response
of yours referenced abouve is:
  Message-ID: <address@hidden>

About `enable-multibyte-characters': In that buffer the value is `nil'
but I ran into something I don't understand trying to set it to `t'.

M-x set-variable enable-multibyte-characters t

Gives me: 
  Variable enable-multibyte-characters is read-only

I don't recall ever seeinig that message come up when setting a var before.

C-u C-x =  on a character that looks like an `a' with two small dots
over it followed by slash (\)200\234current date(a with dots)\200\235

  character: รข (0342, 226, 0xe2)
    charset: eight-bit-graphic (8-bit graphic char (0xA0..0xFF))
 code point: 226
     syntax:    which means: whitespace
   category:
buffer code: 0xE2
  file code: 0xE2 (encoded by coding system utf-8)
       font: -Adobe-Courier-Bold-R-Normal--14-100-100-100-M-90-ISO8859-1
