That should be the default if you manage to make the new ruby variant
of texexec to work.

(I ask because I don't know that myself: why is this needed inside a document?)

This is already the default value (and has been so for quite some time
already), so you don't need to set it to the same value again.

I'm sorry. I sent a few messages off-list to Hans and forgot to
mention that on the list. The problem has been solved, you probably
only have to wait for a new release. If you want to have it properly
right away, you have to change \startregime[iso-8859-1] in
regi-8859-1.tex into \startregime[8859-1] (and define a new synonym in
regi-syn.tex for those who will want to use
\enableregime[iso-8859-1]).
