How to setup latin character set settings for MySQL and CI?

I'm building an PHP5 application with MySQL for English and Spanish speaking. I'm thinking of using some kind of latin character (latin1) set that supports both English and Spanish. The application is strictly US only and it doesn't need to support the full international range of languages. So, there's no need to go UTF8.

I'm using CodeIgniter 2+. I just noticed the CI Database settings. $db['default']['char_set'] = 'utf8'; $db['default']['dbcollat'] = 'utf8_general_ci'; Does anyone have a list of changes required for the latin1 character set? I assume I also need the proper MySQL database charset and any collation settings on the db and tables?

Or, should I go the UTF8 route?
Thanks, Jeff
