Francisco Moraes asked in the Suggestion Box:
Are there any code pages (exception EBCDIC) where the normal 7-bit ASCII characters are in different code points, ie, letter A is not found at 0x41?
In the narrow sense of the world of [Microsoft] Windows 'ANSI' code pages, [IBM] 'OEM' code pages, and [ISO] 8859-n code pages that are supported on Windows, the answer to this a cautious yes.
The caution is because I have run across those who feel that the the issue with the Japanese Yen and the Korean Won is a good example of an exception to this rule, though personally I feel that since they are all path separators that this is actually okay....
This post (like numerous others!) brought to you proudly by "\", "¥", and "₩" (U+005c, U+00a5, and U+20a9, a.k.a. REVERSE SOLIDUS, YEN SIGN, and WON SIGN)
