As I said, any such problems need fixing in ispell.el and friends.

However, I don't think the above causes ispell misalignment errors --
the original complaint (due to iso 2022 escape sequences being
produced).  Anyway, the current code does nothing about C1 characters,
and there's no parameter to change that behaviour:

(memq 'iso-latin-1
      (find-coding-systems-string (string (make-char 'latin-iso8859-1 #xa3)
                                          (make-char 'latin-iso8859-2 #xa3))))
  => nil

(encode-coding-string (string (make-char 'latin-iso8859-1 #xa3)
                              (make-char 'latin-iso8859-2 #xa3))
  => "\243\200?"
