I have this in my .emacs:
(setq-default buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
When I create a file in emacs and save it, it should be buffered and saved in utf-8-unix.
When I open such a file again after some time, the regional characters I had put in the file originally - å, ä and ö - will appear as capital A with tilde plus one of three cluttercharacters which I don't know the names of, a newlinesymbol, a sort of skull-symbol, and the yen-symbol.
Obviously, what I want is the original symbols when I reopen the file.
Why is this happening, how can I change that behaviour?
What I found in the documentation is the function (set-coding-systems-priority... but I'm not sure how to use it.
Also, second in that list is utf-8 (alias mule-utf-8), and first is iso-latin-1, which I assume is the system that is overriding my åäö's with clutter. Should I just change my default coding system from utf-8-unix to utf-8, if there's any difference. ?.
I'm a bit buffeled about all those coding issues in emacs...
Thanx for any enlightenment on the topic.
