To tell "vim" use "latin1" as a file encoding and buffer encoding, add
these lines to either your <~/.vimrc> (per-user settings), or
</etc/vimrc> (global settings) [Note: Although the noted paths are most
likely the right ones, they are prone to ditribution dependence.]

[ -- begin vimrc quotation: <-----------------------------------------]
" set the file and buffer encoding to "latin1" for *TeX files:
au BufRead *.tex		set fileencodings=latin1 encoding=latin1
au BufNewFile *.tex		set fileencodings=latin1 encoding=latin1
[ -- end vimrc quotation: |-------------------------------------------]

And be sure to read the output of vim's ":help encoding",
":help fileencoding", and ":help fileencodings".
