No it's not.  It is encoded as  ISO8859-1 (ISO Latin 1).  You should ask
your software  vendor instead.  If  you can edit software  settings, I'd
recommend  using Latin  1  as the  default.  Be  sure  to [1]check  your
environment  for  LANG  or  LC_CTYPE variables  that  must  reflect  the
encoding you're wishing to use.
