The latest Gnus treats iso-8859-1 as windows-1252 by default.
Because it is thought that windows-1252 is a superset of
iso-8859-1.  Actually, some articles use windows-1252 even if
they are labeled with iso-8859-1.  So, Gnus' default will be
useful to decode such articles correctly.  Though you can
invalidate it by: (setq mm-charset-override-alist nil)
