listed there) have some info about using Vim to create multilingual files.
You can't type š č ć ž đ etc. when 'encoding' is set to Latin1 because
those characters are not among the 191 printable and 65 control
characters which make up the 255-character set of Latin1. These
characters are typical of Slavic or "East European" languages while
Latin1 is a "Western" encoding which can represent most European
languages used West of the former Iron Curtain, not including Greek,
Turkish, Maltese, and I'm not sure about Inuqtitut and Basque.
