I just run the following experiment (the result you might respect, but I
found it surprising).

    1. I open a new file.

    2. I write שלום איל

    3. I save it as iso8859-8 (no warning pops up)

    4. I reopen the file and its interpreted as iso8859-1

Firstly, why does Emacs expect this to be iso8859-1? Is there any variable
I could change?

Secondly, shouldn't Emacs send a warning: «you are saving this file as
single-byte, be aware that when emacs reopen the file it might not
guess the coding» or something like this???
