I've just tested that the problem occurs also in CVS Emacs, so I
cross-post to emacs-devel.

When I paste two kanji characters from Mozilla (Debian package 1.4-4)
to Emacs 21.3.1. from the Debian package or to the CVS version
compiled by myself (, I get


The numbers in braces are the correct Unicode code points of the
characters in question.

I repeated the experiment in a different Debian installation. When I
paste from Galeon 1.2.5 to Emacs 21.2.1 from the Debian package, I get
just 2 question marks. However, when I paste them into exactly the
same CVS version as above, I get two strange characters (displayed as
question signs in reverse video), the first one being reported as "c
with acute":

  character: ć (0346, 230, 0xe6, U+65E5)
    charset: eight-bit-graphic (8-bit graphic char (0xA0..0xFF))
 code point: 230
     syntax:    which means: whitespace
buffer code: 0xE6
  file code: not encodable by coding system iso-8859-2
       font: -ETL-Fixed-Medium-R-Normal--16-160-72-72-C-80-ISO8859-1

Composed with the following character(s) `—�' to form `日'.

There are text properties here:
  fontified            t
  untranslated-utf-8   26085
  composition          (0 3

The Unicode code point is correct, but the rest seems a complete mess

Las but not least, a good news: the characters are pasted correctly in
