Rumor has it that Redhat has changed to Unicode as the default
locale.  Type locale in a shell to see if this is the case.  Maybe
you will be happier with LANG=es_ES or something like this.

For opening old, wrong, files it might work to do C-x RET c utf-8 RET
C-x C-f /path/to/file RET.

If this wasn't it, please show us the file that got saved, and tell
us what you see on screen after opening the file.
A preposition is not a good thing to end a sentence with.
