I see the same rectangles for illegal characters that I do for missing
fonts in view-hello-file.

So emacs (21.4.1) doesn't distinguish the two cases. What would be
best is like firefox with the rectangles with the hex digits for
missing fonts... and diamonds with "?" for illegal chars.

What is the point of naming the plain text file with the .html
extension, which invokes HTML mode?  And what is the point of
invalidating the HTML by inserting the Emacs file coding variable
outside of a comment (<!-- ... -->)?
