OK, you're right: it really works better now, I had made some

As you wrote, this won't work.

It didn't work, but should work now.  I attached 3 files
(temp1,2,7 encoded in iso-8859-1,2,7 respectively).
  C-x C-f temp1 RET ESC < C-n C-s C-w C-x C-f temp2 C-s C-s
should find " á", and
  C-x C-f temp1 RET ESC < C-n C-n C-s C-w C-x C-f temp7 C-s C-s
should find " °".

Yes, I can confirm: it works! It works also in my own test files – except one: the ISO 8859-6 encoded one. I was searching for HYPHEN- MINUS, U+00AD. I'll attach my test file. It could be also useful in the ISO 8859-6 possible bug I reported recently.

Anyway, what also does not work is: C-s C-q <a non-ASCII, i.e.
greater 177 octal code>. For those with really small keyboards this
is the (almost?) only chance to find some of the x times 64 K
characters in Unicode ...

This should work now too.  For instance, " " and "á" are
0255 and 0341 in iso-8859-1 charset.  So, if your primary
charset is iso-8859-1, C-q 255 C-q 341 RET should input
" á".  And,
  C-x C-f temp2 ESC < C-s C-q 255 C-q 341 RET
should find " á" even if the characters in that buffer is
from iso-8859-2.

I did not try this test because it is too simple: LATIN SMALL LETTER A WITH ACUTE (U+00E1) is in the two encodings on 341/225/E1.

Please use my answer to Miles Bader as test case! I can send you my other ISO 8859-X test files.
