Do you know how Emacs handles UTF-8? Is it perhaps converted to some other
encoding (e.g. iso-8859-1) when the document is saved?

The book we're writing is structured that there is a master file and all
other files are included using entities (each chapter is in its own
file). That said, do I have to add this declaration to the beginning of
each file or is it enough if it appears at the top of my master file only?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
