I don't think it works for XEmacs. I've got a MULE-aware XEmacs 21.4.6 and while it asks if I want to set the local variables in the -*- line, I still see "Raw" in the modeline, and I see the following letters in print string (with funny little lines above the characters): iAOOEI. See attached capture. That doesn't seem right, does it?
