character sets- missing feature?

In Revolution how can I display text with foreign character sets? Not 
Unicode. For example this text file is ISO-8859-2 (Central European ISO 
Latin 2)

In Apple TextEdit, I can select "Central European ISO Latin 2" while 
open that file and it displays what appear to be the correct characters.

Rev's MacToISO and ISOToMac functions, while useful, seem to fall short 
of dealing with many, many text encodings out there. Hopefully I am 
overlooking something. I fear I will have to write an external to do 
this :-/
