Yes! Thank you. :external-format CHARSET:ISO-8859-1 solved the problem.
You made a correct assumption on my current version. I will supply
(lisp-implementation-version) in the future.
In Acrobat Reader there is a toolbar button with a T (for "text"?). Select
that and one can select text, then copy,....I pasted into an Emacs buffer...
Thank you again,

you did not specify the CLISP version and where you got your binaries.
I assume that you mean the latest release 2.25.1 and my binary from SF.
next time please supply the value of (lisp-implementation-version).

you need to specify the :external-format argument to open, see
