In theory, one can use

@documentencoding ISO-8859-1

in the texinfo file, and use plain latin1. Unfortunately, it's not
fully implemented in texinfo.tex, even if it works fine for info and
html output.

I have a patch to texinfo that seems to work, although I've been told
that it doesn't solve the problem in the right way (it probably won't
do correct hyphenation of words with umlauts, but the @"a
constructions won't do that either).

If you want to try it, get texinfo.tex-patch and ISO-8859-1.def from

I'm somewhat annoyed that this isn't fixed properly in the texinfo
