Agreed.  You really need to be using emacs23 from CVS.  It's stable
enough (I've been using it for over a year), and it's unicode-based
and supports Xft font rendering.  So you get emacs + pretty fonts +
unicode, which is pretty much the definition of perfection.
cperl-mode also has some nice improvements (syntax coloring in
regexes, proper recognition of :Attributes, etc.)

Read the emacs wiki for more details.
