Windows 1252 is really that?

If you go to wikipedia description of Windows 1252 encoding, and you will find that 00E9 is the “é” character
Now open Notepad++, create a new file
Click on Encoding -> Character sets -> Western European -> Windows 1252
Download the HEX-Editor plugin if you don’t have it. Open the hex view, and type “e9”. Return to the normal view, and notepad++ will not recognize the character, showing instead a black box with the character hex code inside
If you instead select Encoding -> Encode in ANSI, then the “é” character is shown
So I think that Notepad++ ANSI is the real “Windows 1252”, while Notepad++ “Windows 1252” is what?
