source file encoding

When searching in all source files using jEdit, it complains about 4 files.

2 use encoding ISO-8859 and jEdit says data could be lost if opened as


$ file src/app-utils/calculation/fin.c

src/app-utils/calculation/fin.c:               ISO-8859 text


$ file 'src/tax/us/de_DE/taxtxf - LIES MICH.txt'

src/tax/us/de_DE/taxtxf - LIES MICH.txt: ISO-8859 text


Most source files seem to be Ascii.

Is this something that should be fixed?


I can tell jEdit to reload using a particular ISO-8859 part but how do I
know which one to use, or doesn't it matter?

I guess it doesn't matter as I'm not intending to change any of these files.


Others jEdit complains about are:


$ file src/report/jquery.jqplot.min.js

src/report/jqplot/jquery.jqplot.min.js: ASCII text, with very long lines


$ file 'src/tax/us/de_DE/txf-USt-VA Anleitung 2011.pdf'

src/tax/us/de_DE/txf-USt-VA Anleitung 2011.pdf: PDF document, version 1.5
