ISO-8859-1 is not a font it's an encoding.

Depending on the software, different font systems will be used to
display text in this encoding :
1. non-X console : kbd fonts
2. legacy X application : so-called X core fonts
3. anything relatively recent (CLI app in GUI terminal, GUI app) :

You seem to be in case 1 or 2. I seriously advice moving to 3 if you
don't want to spend a lot of time fighting legacy systems few people
maintain nowadays.
