This is not about typing in other characters but referring
to them in .el-Files

This is more about particular keyboard layouts.

Yes, this is definitely better than what I had before,
but it is not what my post was about.
If latin-1 would be everything, then this would be perfect.

If I understand the situation correctly you need for any encoding

Right? The point would be to be able to refer to different
encodings in the same file.
