Indeed, I've managed to do it and it works. Thanks again!

It's not so important, since Ansinew is an mere extension of Latin1,  
with some more symbols (œ and Œ for example, used in French  
language). I can easily fix the files coming from Windows that are in  
this encoding and that contain this kind of symbols: I open them in  
Iso Latin 1 and manually replace the œ and Œ by the LaTeX commands  
\oe and \Œ. It's kind of "boring", but not so much :-)
