You mean, even with "C-x RET c latin-1 C-x C-f" Emacs still claims
that the umlauts are eight-bit-graphic characters? That is soooo
What version of Emacs is that? What does "M-x emacs-version RET" say?
Anyway, I just logged into a GNU/Linux box from Windows using
ISO-8859-1 as encoding in Translation page, and I see the u-umlaut
characters in your example file just fine, with PuTTY version 0.58
that uses Courier New font for display. I see 3 1's in the left edge
of the mode line, meaning that keyboard and terminal are set to use
Latin-1 and the file is decoded as Latin-1 as well.
I wonder why you see something different.
