This bug report will be sent to the Free Software Foundation,
not to your local site managers!
Please write in English, because the Emacs maintainers do not have
translators to read other languages for them.
 
Your bug report will be posted to the address@hidden mailing list,
and to the gnu.emacs.bug news group.
 
In GNU Emacs 21.3.1 (i386-mingw-nt5.1.2600)
 of 2004-03-10 on NYAUMO
configured using `configure --with-gcc (3.2)'
Important settings:
  value of $LC_ALL: nil
  value of $LC_COLLATE: nil
  value of $LC_CTYPE: nil
  value of $LC_MESSAGES: nil
  value of $LC_MONETARY: nil
  value of $LC_NUMERIC: nil
  value of $LC_TIME: nil
  value of $LANG: FIN
  locale-coding-system: iso-latin-1
  default-enable-multibyte-characters: t
 
Please describe exactly what actions triggered the bug
and the precise symptoms of the bug:
 
Handling finnish text, perfectly legal format, trying to save, emacs gives
out this stupid complain and will not let me save the file in legit coding
system. When I save it without coding system, it will screw up my content.
 
How stupid is this that emacs will keep me as a prisoner and I dont have an
option to overwrite the coding system selection and save the text in
encoding I wish even if doesnt "safely encode the target text". Last time I
checked I should be the boss and emacs my tool. 

Please, do not ever let user get to this kind of situation where you do not
let him have the option of doing what he wants, even though emacs thinks its
not "safe" (there are sometimes cases where the user actually know what he's
doing even a bit better than emacs programmer). To me this is really
elementary thing in software business and I do see it everywhere. Very
disappointing this kindergarden stuff has creeped into emacs also.
