In an ongoing project, we are inserting multibyte text into a buffer and experiencing strange behavior. When the question is first viewed, we receive something like:
Quote Environment à la Strunk\341\200\231s \342\200\230The Elements of Style\342\200\231
which, obviously, should be
Quote Environment à la Strunk’s ‘The Elements of Style’
Note the special quotes; reference question here. Interestingly, using
(set-buffer-multibyte nil) (set-buffer-multibyte t)
Shameless plug: that ongoing project posted this question.
