Problems on Emacs use with solutions

Problem: Emacs does not save my file in Latin1 even if the file was in Latin1 when I loaded it.
Solution: C-x RET c iso-latin-1-unix (command universal-coding-system-argument) just before saving the file. See Emacs documentation on coding systems for alternative methods. (Is there an easy way to force Emacs to use Latin1 as a default when saving files?)
