Hi,

ISO-8859-1 is not identical to the basic ASCII English character set!
The English characters (US-ASCII) are a subset of ISO-8859-1, which 
also contains characters for other western European languages. As far 
as I know the special German and Scandinavian characters are not included in
the basic JIS standard (JIS 0208) even if Greek and Cyrillic
alphabets are, and hence not in shift-JIS. In the supplementary
set, JIS 0212, there are characters called "21 diacritics and symbols"
in row 2, that I suppose are likely to include some commonly
used northern European characters, but shift-JIS does not support
JIS 0212.

(or I actually spell it Jöran, if your font supports ISO-8859-1 characters!)
