I wouldn't recommend to do so! You can easily open such a file in some MS Windows encoding, enter a SPC, save in some ISO Latin, and remove the SPC (I think one change is needed to make GNU Emacs save a file, because: what's the sense in saving a safe file?). Don't forget to save again ...

If you have more of such files you can use recode or iconv to convert them to some ISO Latin. Or: you can use Samba to present all MS Windows files in ISO Latin ... (a mount option)
