emacs, UTF-8, japanese -- how?

I'm using emacs (GNU Emacs 21.4.1 (i386-pc-linux-gnu, X toolkit, Xaw3d 
scroll bars) of 2005-03-17 on trouble, modified by Debian)
on a sarge system.  The default locale is en.CA.UTF-8.  I've recently 
found out how to edit Japanese (meta-X set-input-methis and choose 
"japanese") but I am unable to get it to save the edited file as UTF-8.  
It offers to save in (IIRC) euc-jp coding,  which is *not* UTF-8 
(I've looked at the octal dump to make sure).

Does anyone know how to get it to use UTF-8?  Do I have to upgrade to a 
post-sarge version of emacs?

Hmmm.  my etch AMD-64 system also says it uses emacs 21.4.1.... Has 
emacs become static?  Do I need a post-etch emacs?
