I have to use ':set fileencoding=iso-88591' and with that I produced the
file file-iso-8859-1.txt as:

$ cat file-iso-8859-1.txt
¡Viva la Revolución!

$ od -c file-iso-8859-1.txt
0000000  241   V   i   v   a       l   a       R   e   v   o   l   u   c
0000020    i 363   n   !  \n                                            
0000025

As you see, the non ASCII chars are coded in ISO.

I reloaded it with 'vim file-iso-8859-1.txt' without setting the
encoding, added some more chars and wrote it back as:

$ od -c file-iso-8859-1.txt
0000000  241   V   i   v   a       l   a       R   e   v   o   l   u   c
0000020    i 363   n   !  \n 241   V   i   v   a       l   a       R   e
0000040    v   o   l   u   c   i 363   n   !  \n                  
0000052

and all was fine.

This is with vim 8.1.555 on 

$ uname -a
FreeBSD c720-r342378 13.0-CURRENT FreeBSD 13.0-CURRENT GENERIC  amd64
