   Do you also see it if you open the file with `emacs -Q`?
   If so, try the following:
      emacs -Q ~/.emacs.el
      C-x RET r utf-8 RET
   this should re-read the file, but forcing Emacs to interpret it as
   so presumably, "heriter" should now appear correctly.  Also the left
   part of
   the mode-line should say "U" to mean.
   If that's indeed, the case, then try to save the file (after making
   a trivial modification to it like `SPC DEL`).
   If this works without complaint, check the "U" in the mode-line: is it
   still there?

   Everything worked as you said and indeed the U is still there.
   When I first open the file I get an = where the U should be.
   (emacs manual: "`=' means no conversion whatsoever, and is usually used
   for files containing non-textual data"...)
   So, should I interpret that as emacs is, for some reason, not using
   UTF-8 to read the file ?
