coding system config


i'm using emacs-w3m 1.3.6 with w3mmee 0.3.2 and emacs 21.3.1, and
would use a little help on the correct coding system configuration for
my current setup. mainly, i visit pages covered by the iso-8859-1(5)
coding system and use

(set-language-environment "Latin-1")

in my .emacs. most web pages look ok, but, now and then, i find pages
with some sparse characters that are displayed as japanese kanjis. for
instance, in this page:


i see the following line:

four major categoriesÍŐhe creational, behavioral, structural, and

i've tried to tweak w3m-coding-system and friends, but if i set them
to iso-8859-15, special characters such as bullets appear in the w3m
buffer as weird control characters ([^123 or things like that). so,
what is the correct emacs-w3m coding system setup in order to get
european-language pages properly displayed? or is it a problem of the
visited pages' HTML?

thanks for any help,
