    I think this is where the communication breakdown occurred, our use of
    the "ASCII" term. In PC lingo (and in all PC based literature since
    about 1986 on the subject), ASCII is assumed to be the PC character set
    for those of us from the "DOS/Windows world". To unix folks, "ASCII"
    means something different -- a richer and more specific definition as to
    what this refers to (which is why I and some unix folks seem to talk
    past each other on this topic).
