Mention 'enable-character-translation'

This entry has not been added to the Emacs manual:

*** You can disable character translation for a file using the -*-
construct.  Include `enable-character-translation: nil' inside the
-*-...-*- to disable any character translation that may happen by
various global and per-coding-system translation tables.  You can also
specify it in a local variable list at the end of the file.

I guess it should go here (but there seems to be a typo):

    If you add the character `!' at the end of the coding system name,
 it disables any character translation while decoding the file.  For
 instance, it effectively cancels the effect of
 `unify-8859-on-decoding-mode'.  This is useful when you need to make
 sure that the character codes in the Emacs buffer will not according to
 user settings; for instance, for the sake of strings in Emacs Lisp
 source files.
