Re: unicode editing



The variable default-enable-multibyte-characters was the problem.  I
just deleted the line where I had set it to t in my .emacs file and
I'm back to the behavior I had previously.

This behavior is not ideal.  The multibyte characters get read as hex
values when I move up or down lines with c-n or c-p, but not with  m-f
or m-b or c-f or c-b.  I was hoping this would have been improved in
the latest version of emacspeak.
Should I set the describe-char-unicodedata-file variable?
