You don't really need an iso-8859-* font to get latin-1 encoding. I
got the following code in my .emacs to turn on Latin 1 with Monaco
(don't ask me what it means):


(set-language-environment "Latin-1")

(require 'ucs-tables)
(unify-8859-on-encoding-mode 1)
(unify-8859-on-decoding-mode 1)


(set-frame-font "fontset-monaco")

(add-to-list 'default-frame-alist
 '(font . "fontset-monaco"))
