(defcustom selection-coding-system nil
"Coding system for communicating with other X clients.
When sending text via selection and clipboard, if the target
data-type matches with the type of this coding system, it is used
for encoding the text. Otherwise (including the case that this
variable is nil), a proper coding system is used as below:
data-type coding system
--------- -------------
COMPOUND_TEXT compound-text-with-extensions
STRING iso-latin-1
C_STRING no-conversion
When receiving text, if this coding system is non-nil, it is used
for decoding regardless of the data-type. If this is nil, a
proper coding system is used according to the data-type as above.
See also the documentation of the variable `x-select-request-type' how
to control which data-type to request for receiving text.
The default value is nil."

is considered obsolete.) DATA may be a string, a symbol, an
integer (or a cons of two integers or list of two integers).
The selection may also be a cons of two markers pointing to the same buffer,
or an overlay. In these cases, the selection is considered to be the text
between the markers *at whatever time the selection is examined*.
Thus, editing done in the buffer after you specify the selection
can alter the effective value of the selection.
The data may also be a vector of valid non-vector selection values.
The return value is DATA.
Interactively, this command sets the primary selection. Without
prefix argument, it reads the selection in the minibuffer. With
prefix argument, it uses the text of the region as the selection value.
Note that on MS-Windows, primary and secondary selections set by Emacs
are not available to other programs."
