......@@ -208,10 +208,10 @@ good idea to add a 'coding' cookie to the file to state its encoding.
Please use the UTF-8 encoding unless it cannot do the job for some
good reason. As of Emacs 24.4, it is no longer necessary to have
explicit 'coding' cookies in *.el files if they are encoded in UTF-8,
but other files need them even if encoded in UTF-8. And even for *.el
files, having an explicit encoding specification facilitates correct
display of non-ASCII characters when the file is visited in older
Emacs versions.
but other files need them even if encoded in UTF-8. However, if
an *.el file is intended for use with older Emacs versions (e.g. if
it's also distributed via ELPA), having an explicit encoding
specification is still a good idea.
