Thanks. I had already tried "xterm -u8", but I hadn't gotten very far.

I had even tried all this with emacs before too without any luck.

I think I just got it though. It requires teaching emacs that the file
is utf-8, (I'm not sure why it doesn't figure this out properly), and
that the terminal wants utf-8.

So, the following lets me view our new comment just fine:

	(setq file-coding-system-alist (cons '("" . utf-8) file-coding-system-alist))
	(set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8)

But I may still have to futz with the input stuff a bit.

Oh, and this all seems to work even after removing the mule-ucs package,
(which was slowing down the load time of emacs quite a bit).

Anyway, thanks for the help. I'm glad to be in the modern world all of a
