Stefan, thanks a lot, though I am still not sure I understand
correctly what you say. If I understand you right

(standard-display-default 128 255)

should work if I am not in unibyte mode. 

When I load a buffer with german umlaute in "emacs --no-init-file",
according to the modeline emacs is not using the unibyte mode.
Nonetheless, standard-display-default has no effect for me either.
Or am I missing something here?
