In general, you are far better off using multibyte-mode (the default)
unless you have a specific reason to _avoid_ it -- Emacs simply works
better in multibyte-mode (even if you don't specially use multibyte
character sets).  Unibyte-mode is kept only for backward compatibility,
and I suspect will be removed at some point.
