FULL DISCUSSION
 

Hi Ben!!!! Glad to see you went into full Emacs mode!!!

Since there might be some Windows users ot there and UTF-8 is kind of a pain to get it right in Emacs, here's a snippet from my own init.el.

  ;; UTF-8 please
  (setq locale-coding-system 'utf-8) ; pretty
  (set-terminal-coding-system 'utf-8) ; pretty
  (set-keyboard-coding-system 'utf-8) ; pretty
  (set-selection-coding-system 'utf-8) ; please
  (setq-default buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
  (setq-default default-buffer-file-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
  (set-default-coding-systems 'utf-8-unix)
  (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8-unix)
  (when (eq system-type 'windows-nt)
    (set-clipboard-coding-system 'utf-16le-dos))
 

Ah, excellent! Great call, I'll add these to the post and my own config.
