OK, I edited
and did my best to be accurate, informative, concise and neutral.

Latin-1 is really used as a synonym/alias for ISO-8859-1 in for example
Qt C++ library, Python standard library and Java library and also in
http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets. Pedantic or not, I think
that documentation should be accurate and unabiguous.
