The anomalies seem to be:
  1) ISO-8859-1 is decoded as Windows-1252.
  2) 0x85 in ISO-8859-10 and in ISO-8859-16 is decoded as in  
Windows-1252 (ellipsis) by Gecko.
  3) ISO-8859-11 is decoded as Windows-874.

I was rather surprised by the results. They weren't at all what I  
Test data: http://hsivonen.iki.fi/test/iso8859/

I suggest adding the ISO-8859-11 to Windows-874 mapping to the spec.
