My test was very simple: I opened the ISO 8859-1 encoded file (starts
with ;;; -*- mode: Text; coding: iso-8859-1; -*-) and typed C-s ä C-s
RET. The I opened the other ISO Latin test file, which all have a
coding set in the first line. Then I re-used the ä via C-s C-s.

That "re-using" is also the case that the previous change
didn't take care.  Could you please try the test with the
latest code?

The CVS code is from Sunday or Monday. After applying your patch nothing changes for my simple test (emacs-22.0.50 -Q). I did it also for °, which can't be found in ISO 8859-7 and ISO 8859-8 although it exists there additionally/instead of ä.

For ­, U+00AD HYPHEN-MINUS, the most common character, I get when starting from ISO 8859-1:

failure: ISO 8859-2, ISO 8859-3, ISO 8859-4, ISO 8859-5, ISO 8859-7, ISO 8859-8, ISO 8859-9, ISO 8859-14, ISO 8859-15
        success: ISO 8859-10, ISO 8859-13, ISO 8859-16

although in all these 13 encodings it's (oct/dec/hex) 255 - 173 - AD. Starting the search for HYPHEN-MINUS in an ISO 8859-15 encoded file it's found in no other ISO 8859 encoded file.

This is not satisfactory. This is not unified.



Some day we may discover how to make magnets that can point in any direction.
