Everything's fine.  When it returned ISO-8859-1, it just means that
the full locale name is en_US.ISO-8859-1.  So the second command
doesn't make any sense since ISO-8859-1 isn't a locale by itself.

I've never tried to create a locale before.  Hopefully it hasn't
trashed your en_US one.  Someone else needs to answer that, but you
might be alright.
