That's two DIFFERENT things.  

UTF-8 is a form of encoding text (this is letter A, this is number 3,
etc.), it's used for all sorts of types of text (plain text, HTML, word
processor documents, etc.).

Text formatting, is another matter (plain text with no formatting, HTML
formatting, RTF, etc.).

Regardless of format, UTF-8 is a good option, as it's one encoding
scheme, world wide, for just about any character you could type.  As
opposed to things like US-ASCII, which is limited to just 127 different
characters; or ISO-8859-1, which covers about twice as many, but still
not enough for some texts.

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.  I
read messages from the public lists.
