Right. So #1 is utf-8. Then #2 is utf-16?

No, #2 is ISO-8859-1, which is also known as Latin 1. As it happens, it's also Windows-1252, which today is really a quasi-superset of ISO-8859-1. Neither ISO-8859-1 nor Windows-1252 are Unicode at all, so #2 is not in any Unicode character encoding scheme such as UTF-16.

The character encodings ISO-8859-1 (Latin 1) and Windows-1252 are often referred to as "legacy encodings," especially vis-ŕ-vis Unicode.
