The manual has the @documentencoding which declares Latin1 encoding.
So I believe included_latîn1.texi is converted to UTF-8 correctly.

The problem happens when accessing this file via 'stat' etc., because
the locale's encoding cannot encode î.

For this to work, the non-ASCII character we use should be encodable
both by Latin1 and by the Windows codepages.  This is a tough
requirement, but if you look at the tables of these encodings, you
will see that some codepoints between 0xA1 and 0xAF are identical
between many Windows codepages and Latin1.  For example, 0xAB is
identical in many codepages.  So maybe we could try such a character,
for these tests?
