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?
Indeed not: It interprets it as latin-1. I hope XEmacs will eventually follow the GNU Emacs conventions here, since I think they are useful.
After reading some of the Emacs docs, I think we should allow a more flexible coding line:
-*- ... coding: (\w+) ... -*-
because you will sometimes want to add more variables to that Emacs init line than just the encoding declaration.
Does anybody know where XEmacs is moving w/r to this ? (and for that matter what about vi, vim, etc. ?)
