Mmmm.... I was using Xemacs on a full-UTF-8 distro (to the best of my
knowledge, at least), and copy/pasted the names from paypal pages on
I thought XEmacs supported UTF-8 and auto-detected the charset
automatically. I looks like it doesn't do the auto-detection. I wonder
how I can force it to open the file as an UTF-8 file..... I also
wonder what happens when I copy/paste between applications that may or
may not support UTF-8....

Ok, I'll keep that in mind if I can't manage to have my editor keep
everything as UTF-8.
