Saving a file with utf-8 encoding from withing a Rebol 2 script

I am using a REBOL/view script to automate the construction of webpages. In my html code headers I define the meta charset to utf-8. However, texts that include accented vowels or the or character (the n tilde entity) do not come out right, which would be expected if the file that defines the completed html code was not itself saved with utf-8 encoding.
To be fair, this can be circumvented if one sets the meta charset to ISO-8859-1
But I would like to know if it is possible to use save, load or some refinement of them to create the file with utf-8 encoding (with or without BOM) from within a Rebol script.
Thanks for your help

Yes it is possible to save UTF-8 from Rebol but you need to convert the text first yourself.
These utility functions may help - http://www.rebol.org/view-script.r?script=str-enc-utils.r
