Non-ASCII is a bit vague ;-).  You need to determine how these
characters are encoded and handled by Emacs and by your environment to
get to the root of the problem.

Put the cursor on a non-ASCII character in Emacs and type

  M-x describe-char-after RET

What does the resulting help buffer say about the character set?

While you are in the buffer that you want to save, type

  M-x describe-coding-system RET

What is the result of that?

What is the character encoding that you use there?  Can you type

 $> echo ├▒ | od -t x1

on your terminal, so we can see an example of what you use there?

What encoding does your version of TeX expect?
