That is the standard setting on my system.

But thanks to Katsumi Yamaoka's hint I've come to realise that I was
wrong. The site is apparently encoded in Windows-1252 although the
specification is missing. So my problem is the following:
When I load the page, emacs recognises the encoding properly,
i.e. after pressing = it says
Modifer Information

Document Content-Type:  
Document Charset:       windows-1252

However, non ASCII characters are represented as question marks and
according to the mode line of the buffer, which starts with -uut:%%,
the buffer is encoded in raw-text (if I understand it rightly).
So it's probably just that emacs 21.4 has poor windows-1252
support. Is there a way to solve this (perhaps even by using a mostly
similar encoding as a replacement)?
