C-x RET does not do what the documentation says it should

In emacs 20.4 (running on a Unix platform), the key sequence is a prefix
for commands that pertain to multibyte characters coding systems, and
input methods.
In emacs 21.2 (the win32 binary loaded from the windows page
<> running on a Windows32
platform), the key sequence C-x RET now invokes spell, however in the
info pages at the bottom of the Introduction to International Character
Sets node (International -> International Chars) is the following:

   The prefix key `C-x <RET>' is used for commands that pertain to
multibyte characters, coding systems, and input methods.

Additionally the Specifying a Coding System node (International ->
Specify Coding) specifically lists seven commands that is says are
invoked via C-x RET followed by another character and the Selecting an
Input Method node (International -> Select Input Method) lists another

Since I do not have access to an emacs 21.1 running on a UNIX platform I
don't know if this is a bug or if the person who created the win32
binary provided this feature.  Could someone who is running emacs 21.1
on UNIX or any other platform where they are sure that they have not
overridden the mapping for C-x RET please have a look at this and let me
know what you find.

I would sincerely like to get back the functionality that is specified
in the info pages, if any one out there knows how to do this I would be
truly grateful for any assistance that you could give.
