The FAQ should mention the i command, then.  The i command is your

Ascii is always 7bit: it defines characters 0 through 127.  `ö' is
Latin-1 or Latin-9.

That's a good point.  I'll try to add some wording to the development

`=' is ascii, `C-=' is not.  (Note that both `a' and `C-a' are ascii!)

It's been a while that I last saw this question.  It used to be more
common, I think, but for some reason it isn't asked often anymore.
Even when it was common, that meant maybe a question every couple of
months...  Hm.
