The -*- coding -*- thingy should not be necessary.  It seems to work OK for
me with Emacs-CVS and LANG=fr_CH.iso-8859-1, but if you could check it
yourself it would be helpful.

(local-set-key [?ö] "(") should work in the console as well, although it
might require a (set-keyboard-coding-system 'latin-1) or something
like that (in Emacs-CVS, the keyboard coding-system should be set
automatically based on the locale).
