Is it useful to report UTF-8 related problems (Emacs CVS version, from

Cut-and-paste via X selection shows issues.

Visit http://www.textkritik.de/bka/dokumente/dok_k/koepke1.htm with
lynx runing in an UTF-8 xterm (the page is in German).  You should be
able to see ,,Die Familie Schroffenstein'' and ,,Amphitryon'' properly
quoted (double left quotes at the line bottom).

Yanking in Emacs with the mouse results in

    address@hidden Familie Schroffenstein$(B!H

Doing the same from the Gnome web browser Galeon results in

    ?Die Familie Schroffenstein?

(literal question marks instead of Unicode quotes).  BTW, there is no
problem to paste from Galeon into an UTF-8 xterm.

The Emacs buffer is UTF-8 enable and I also tried to set the Coding
system for X selection accordingly (C-x RET x utf-8 RET).
