I've most text-files created with EDIT.EXE in Dos-Window.
Emacs shows wrong characters (à, è, ì...) because
these files are in OEM format.

How to convert these OEM text-files in ANSI text-files?

1. Tell Emacs how the file is encoded when you visit it.
2. Tell Emacs how you want the file to be encoded when you save it.

Read the Fine Manual, starting with the Coding Systems section (under International Character Set Support) through Specifying a Coding System for File Text.
