Version:           3.5 (using KDE 3.5.0 Level "a" , SUSE 10.0 UNSUPPORTED)

Hi!
I frequently have to open non UTF-8 encoded files, mostly ISO-8859-1.

all (?) KDE apps require manual adjustment of the coding, while xemacs, gedit, 
kvim recognize display the file correctly, but the startup time is (obviously) 
much longer.

the most user friendly (perfect  for this task) behaviour comes with gedit.

xemacs window is too small
kvim complains about incomplete last line and the window is too small

any idea how to set up konqueror to automagically use gedit.

I tried to define a new file pattern (it is gass*.txt) but this is never used, 
but always *.txt is used.

any idea (except manually selecting gedit)?
