PPS: I have realized that the special characters u-umlaut etc are
encoded in a
file with two bytes, i.e. a file with four special characters and a newline is
9 bytes long. I think this indiates that files are saved not with the latin1
encoding but maybe with unicode or something, I don't know. I guess, a2ps and
also the mail reader interpret the characters with latin1 instead of unicode
(or something). Could this explain why I get the strange characters. I don't
know yet how to change the file encoding under xemacs in order to test this
Hi Laurenz, what do you get for
in the buffer visiting that 9 byte file?
You can also specify a coding system when visit the file via the C-u
C-x C-f (find-file)
Hope this helps,
Best regards, Laurenz.
