Check your ~/.emacs file or site files which Emacs loads when
starting up. You might find something like the following line:
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`standard-display-european' is obsolete (IIRC at least since Emacs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.
