Check your ~/.emacs file or site files which Emacs loads when
starting up.  You might find something like the following line:

(standard-display-european 1)

It might be t, not 1.  This modifies the standard-display-table.
Although I don't know how it is useful in the Latin world, it is
generally harmful.  Reiner Steib wrote as follows:

  `standard-display-european' is obsolete (IIRC at least since Emacs
  20.7).   You should probably use (set-language-environment "Latin-1")
  or omit it completely (Emacs does the right thing when your locales
  are set up correctly).

  `standard-display-european' leads to incorrect behavior of Gnus.

Remove it if there is.
