Here is a recipe:

Starting from an Latin-1 environment enter:

    Grüß Gott!

C-x C-s
(buffer is latin-1 encoded)

Switch input encoding: C-x RET C-\ latin-2-prefix RET; enter:

    Dobr'y den

("'y" becomes one char, y with accent)

C-x C-s
(buffer stays latin-1 encoded, okay)


    Dzie'n dobry!

("'n" becomes one char, n with accent, not available in Latin-1)

C-x C-s
Emacs proposes iso-8859-2, okay, but I would have preferred UTF-8.

C-x RET C-\ TeX RET; enter:


("\euro becomes one char, the euro symbol, missing from latin-2)

Emacs (RC) isn't able to unify the buffer to UTF-8 (it proposes
"x-ctext" etc.); but Emacs (trunk version) can save the buffer UTF-8
encoded.  Hope this helps.
