And here I was always believing that ASCII was a purely
seven bit code. In fact the copy of the ASCII spec I have
(buried :) says so definitively.
Any file with a byte with the 0x80 bit set is NOT ASCII.
Unless there's been a revision of the spec somewhere
that changed that fundamental feature, which I suppose
could always have happened.
