It does. I just checked.

The Unicode characters below code point 256 are identical to ISO
8859-1, yes.

The encoding is different from UTF-8, though, so if you attempt to
parse an ISO 8859-1 file that uses characters above number 127 as
UTF-8 you'll get into trouble. Either you'll have illegal bit
sequences or the characters will be misinterpreted.
