Convincing.  :-)

I'd guess that Uwe prevailingly needs Spanish and German non-ASCII
characters.  Those are sufficiently supported by already in Emacs 21
with (add-to-list 'file-coding-system-alist '("/wikipedia/" utf-8)) as
suggested by Stefan.  With this entry every file in .../wikipedia/ is
de- and encoded with UTF-8.

For example, I wrote the following in Emacs 21 and everything is
displayed correctly:

  ÄÖÜ äöü ß „Hallo Welt und Grüß Gott“
  éíúáó ÉÍÚÁÓ ñ¡¿ ¡Hola!
  “Hello world” ∑ α

Maybe there's something wrong in your fontset config or your system.

My Emacs 21, correctly uses
-Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-SemiCondensed--13-120-75-75-C-60-ISO8859-1 for “ü” and
-Misc-Fixed-Medium-R-SemiCondensed--13-120-75-75-C-60-ISO10646-1 for “α”.

Bye, Reiner.
