Good question.  Can't confirm at the moment; the only non-XFree86
system I have immediate access to is Solaris, and I can't get it into
any UTF-8 locale :-(.

According to the standard, apps that implement compound text must
implement extended segments, and if you implement utf-8 anyway, this
would be trivial to support.  But that doesn't mean they do.

Isn't UTF8_STRING also XFree86 only?  The Solaris apps (xterm and
dtterm) I have tried don't seem to understand it.  (xterm's man page
says X11R5, how strange.)  

Also, after selecting purely ASCII text in an XFree86 UXTerm, I get

(get-selection 'PRIMARY)                => "Loretta Guarino Reid"
(get-selection 'PRIMARY 'COMPOUND_TEXT) => "Loretta Guarino Reid"
(get-selection 'PRIMARY 'UTF8_STRING)   => nil

but that might be an internal problem of XEmacs not knowing what to do
with the data.
