What is missing to make emacs use utf-8 when saving files?

Carbon Emacs *can* save in UTF-8. Make sure that you do not have any settings that make a particular type of files saved non-UTF-8 (as I have for TeX, for example). The mode-line contains information about the encoding. If it's not starting with ``-u:´´ then you can change this from a menu: Options -> Mule -> Set Coding System -> For Saving This Buffer – C-x RET f <your choice> RET. *Messages* and *scratch* should be UTF-8, when there's nothing that prevents it.

The command ``defaults´´ works also on ~/.MacOSX/environment.plist. For example:

        defaults write ${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment LANG <your choice>
setenv MANPATH `defaults read "${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment" MANPATH` ~/.cshrc export PATH=$(defaults read "${HOME}/.MacOSX/environment" PATH) ~/.bash_login

Mit friedvollen Grüßen
