Ah. You have to distinguish between Emacs's internal representation
(that's possibly the 2276 you mention), which doesn't change (al least
unless you try hard ;) and what is in the file (how Emacs writes or
interprets what it reads). You can change those things changing the
coding system (look for something like `multilingual environment').

You can see what coding system is active by doing
`M-x describe-coding-system´.
