I see. However this is only a matter of the default/preferred coding
systems. If you setup your emacs-21 to prefer utf-8, it works just as
well. And this setting is needed anyway in order for new files you
create to be saved as utf-8 and not some broken legacy encoding.

Like I said in the earlier email, you also need to set the selection
encoding, filesystem encoding, etc. if you really want your emacs to
work right..
