SOLR-5082 has been implemented and committed to the code.  In Solr 4.5 
you will be able to add an "ie" parameter to your request (with the 
value iso-8859-1) and then everything will work right for you.

Releases happen fairly often, so hopefully 4.5 will be out in the next 
month or two.  If you want to try it now, you can get the branch_4x 
source code or a branch_4x nightly build.
