Hey Dale!

DS> Maybe that is because you do not want to see.

Here is what I do see;

That is all. Nothing there to indicate conformity to the document in question.

DS> codes with the most significant bit set.

There is no such thing as "extended ASCII". It is bogus. 8 bit characters
yes, "extended ASCII" no. It is that simple.

DS> e.g. Bj.rn, jalape.o, saut., ., etc.

Hm. Looks to be jibberish. If indeed you are using cp437 then it should
convert to; "Björn, jalapeño, sauté, ¼, etc." But then how would any app
know for sure?

DS> And now you are moving from being condescending to being rude.

I would apologize if I believed you would accept it. However my apology would
be insincere and I am sure you would see through it.

Life is good,
