At least it works great in OSX while opening some mac-roman encoded file with
french accentuated characters whilst my prefer-coding-system within Emacs is

C-x RET  c lets  you use another  coding system  for just a  single command.
After your environment remains unchanged (except for opening/saving a file :
it defines the buffer coding system).
