Just for the sake of completeness...

Emacs says that in the ISO image[1], the file 
'/cdrom/readme-txt.dir/README.IT' is encoded as 'iso-latin-1-unix'. This 
seems to be confirmed by Firefox and IE8, which are configured to detec 
automatically the encoding systems of web pages.

Indeed, [2] is detected as UTF-8 and looks right, instead [3,4] are 
detected as Western ISO-8859-1, and look wrong.
