How to turn off languages and use iso-8859-1?

I want Sigil to leave character entities alone (such as AMPldsquo and to use the iso-8859-1 character set, but it keeps coming up with utf-8 and keeps changing my character entities to utf-8 characters. I have looked for a knob in Preferences, but if it is there, I don't know what it is called.

An ePUB must be in UTF-8 and cannot be in another codepage. The named entities is a different subject though.

utf8 or utf16 are the only valid encodings for an epub.

Other than a few "problem" entities, Sigil should leave them alone (it does in my experience). What version are you using?
