[ C&P from <news:address@hidden> ... ]

`C-x RET c NEWCODING-SYSTEM RET C-x C-v RET'

Emacs 22 will have a more simple command for this task:

,----[ `C-h k C-x RET r' ]
| C-x RET r runs the command revert-buffer-with-coding-system
|    which is an interactive compiled Lisp function in `international/mule'.
| It is bound to C-x RET r, <menu-bar> <options> <mule>
| <set-various-coding-system> <revert-buffer-with-coding-system>.
| (revert-buffer-with-coding-system CODING-SYSTEM &optional FORCE)
| 
| Visit the current buffer's file again using coding system CODING-SYSTEM.
| For a list of possible values of CODING-SYSTEM, use M-x list-coding-systems.
`----

[ ... end of C&P ]

`file-coding-system-alist' might also be an option.


Bye, Reiner.
