UTF-8 is supported by LaTeX and Emacs.  I strongly recommend the alpha
version of Emacs because UTF-8 support (and many other things) had
been improved significantly since version 21.



you'll find binaries for Windows and sources for other platforms.

The package also provides auctex, reftex, and preview-latex.

In order to install it on Windows you just have to extract the zip
file and to link bin\runemacs.exe to the desktop.  I "only" have
TeXLive installed at work and I suppose that Emacs uses kpsewhich in
order to find out where the LaTeX files are installed but I don't have
any experience with MikTeX.

After installation go to the menu:

   Options => mule (Multilingual Environment)

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
