I didn't think so, but I just made a test on the wiki, and I think you are
probably right.

I was able to insert Unicode characters in a new lisp-file page, and they
were retained properly after saving - so what I said before is apparently
wrong. I don't know if there was a change to the wiki recently or if this
was always the case. I do know that, with the same browser and the same
browser encoding, I ran into a problem before, but perhaps it was something
I did.

FWIW, I just noticed that my browser is set to Unicode for the encoding, and
it was when I picked up the file with the broken characters.
