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 ?
