## a2ps doesn't print iso-8859-7 correctly

Hi,

when printing the file "ascii.txt" below with --encoding=iso1,
the 0xE4 character is printed as ä.

when printing the same file with --encoding=iso7, it is not
printed as \delta, as it should, but as M-d''.

I spend the afternoon with groveling through the encoding file
and the code reading it and ended up confused - I didn't find
the part where it decides that there is no entry for that character
index.

That is, I didn't find how the data structure that's actually
tested to find the encoding is filled - the encoding file itself
is read (and written to the postscript file) fine.

Is this a bug somewhere, maybe in the encoding file iso7.edf?
I noticed I can use all other isoN encodings I tried and get nonescaped
output...

Regards,
-is
