What I have tried so far includes starting emacs out of a utf-8 xterm, setting
(setq locale-coding-system 'utf-8)
in .emacs. I also tried to prefix find-file with
(C-x C-m c). No success so far: Emacs still displays all non-ascii
characters as two bytes. I have tried emacs in X mode as well as
inside the xterm ("emacs -nw"). My emacs is 21.4.1 from Debian
I'm quite stuck now. Vim works in the utf-8 xterm out of the box.
Maybe I should give up my emacs macros and consider to learn Vim...
