If you want an "a" then you can enter an a without knowing what the latin1 or ascii or utf8 encodings of an a are. They happen to all be the same in that case. If you pick another letter such as pound sign, or e acute they happen to be different, but since typically a human doesn't know any of the numbers it doesn't make any difference, it's just a matter of what your text editor does when you hit save.
