If a file contains only characters in the range [0x00-0x7F], its
representation is identical in US-ASCII, Latin1 or UTF-8. Therefore it
doesn't matter in which of them it is opened, because in fact it is all
three. Where it _would_ matter is if you add to it one or more
characters above 0x7F while editing. To avoid that this situation arises
later, you can force Vim to see the file as Latin1 by making it
incompatible with UTF-8, for instance by underlining your top title with
"divided by" signs, ÷ (0xF7), and making sure to save it _that time_
under Latin1 encoding.
