I'm almost afraid to ask, but how does Mozilla end up displaying that
Really, I just wish mdash (and ldquo, and all that other Windows crap)
got turned into the roughly-corresponding Latin1 characters on paste...
As long as we're on the topic -- how do I search a buffer for
"problematic" characters? I used to do
but that does not match unicrud. The best guess I've been able to
come up with is
(while (and (not (eobp))
(eq 'ascii (charset-after (point))))
