A document can only use one unique charset.
The document encoding "charset=windows-1251" says that character codes must be interpreted as 
windows-1251 codes. If you want to change to iso-8859-1 you need to re-encode your whole document.
The "Save As" command of Amaya allows you to re-encode your document.

You have to pay attention that the charset defined by the HTTP server has the highest priority.
Even if your document specifies windows-1251, the document can be read with another charset
(see File>Document Information).
