Actually, Emacs 21.2 (as well as 21.3) should handle UTF-8 sufficiently  
well -- at least for reading in and not-messing-up [you might need  
"(prefer-coding-system 'utf-8)" in your .emacs].

I'm living a bit on the edge and using Emacs from CVS (21.3.50.*), but  
it doesn't bring big improvements in that regard (at least I think,  
since it's not emacs-unicode branch, which aims to switch Emacs  
internally to UTF-8, which shouldn't be a big improvement on the user  
side, either).

I remember using it without Mule-UCS (which caused only much longer  
startup time), but I may be wrong (because I still had Mule-UCS  
installed with a patch that made it much faster, so I might have  
confused the two terms of usage).

All the entries in ChangeLog I input are done through this same Emacs,  
and using a simple C-x 4 a (of course, my name is set on the system, so  
Emacs just inserts it).
