I've been following this thread closely because I have the original
poster's problem, only the characters that give me trouble are some -
not many, actually - Chinese characters, e.g. ni3, the normal second
person pronoun.  And, as with the original poster, the troublesome
characters, when copied and pasted to other applications from Emacs,
display perfectly.

and try C-x ret c utf-8
C-x C-f

to open the file.

I tried this, but it didn't help.  Emacs 22.3 / Win32.

Even on Emacs 23 although I see the characters in the buffer, I can't save the following as utf-8:

nǐ hǎo 你 好
u+4f60 and u+597d

Or at least not so as to be readable with 22.3. Both versions are using Arial Unicode MS.

Why is that?
