Aha. The files them selves are Latin-1 because they contains some
internationalized examples using swedish chars. So that ought to be
Yes, that's basically OK because XEmacs --without-mule really only
demands a unibyte encoding. Make sure it has a proper -*- coding:
iso-8859-1 -*- local variable, so Mule will handle it correctly too.

What is the proper way to check for that?
is all you need to do. Font support is the user's problem (well, of
course we should document it it, but it's not really a problem on most
platforms these days).
We could do something more complicated to avoid loading mule-ucs on
21.4, but I don't think it's worth it. If somebody loads one of those
libraries, they presumably intend to use them and mule-ucs will be
necessary. If somebody complains, I'll fix it.
