The encoding setting "utf8" (i.e. utf8.def of the "inputenc" package)
supports only a small subset of unicode characters (mainly latin). 
It works e.g. well with German umlauts and other Latin extensions.

However, these are also well supported by LyX internal conversion rules
as defined in the "unicodesymbols" definition file.

"utf8x" (the interface to the "ucs" package) might be a solution for some
characters not "known" by LyX (e.g. for some accented Greek characters used
in polytonic Greek).
