For CREDITS.txt, the only issue is 'Löwis' (ö has latin-1 code 246), which was changed from Loewis in 2003.  If not changed back to the ascii form, what matters is that the encoding used for decoding from bytes to unicode matches the actual encoding.  AFAIK, it currently does

def ShowIDLECredits(self):  # aboutDialog.py, line 130
    self.display_file_text('About - Credits', 'CREDITS.txt', 'iso-8859-1')

No encoding is given for README.txt, line 133, because none should be needed.  I am going to leave this alone for now.
