Well the example "extended characters" you gave looked like Latin-1.  As
I indicated, if you want the encoding to be Latin-1, use 'latin-1' as
the encoding name.  If you want it to be something else, use the
appropriate name for that encoding.  I don't know which encoding you
really want, only you do.
