Emacs still doesn't uses Unicode character codes internally,
thus iso-8859-1 characters and iso-8859-15 characters are
treated differently.  In many cases, user don't notice this
difference because they are automatically converted from/to
each other.  The emacs-unicode-2 branch of Emacs CVS
repository does uses Unicode internally and doesn't have
such a problem.
