Notes 1. Code points X'01' through X'1F' and X'7F' may be controls or graphics depending on context. For displays the hexadecimal code in a memory-mapped video display buffer is a graphic. For printers the graphics context is established by a preceding control sequence in the data stream ESC X'7E08' named Print All Characters. In other situations the code points in question are used as controls.
2. Code points X'1A' and a combination of X'0D' and X'0A' are widely used by operating systems and application programs for IBM Personal Computers and other small computers to indicate End-of-File and End-of-Record respectively.
3. This code page is intended primarily to be used in conjunction with Korean DBCS-PC. Code points X'81' through X'BF' specify the first byte of the double-byte code.
4. SP490000 is a Korean FILL character used in Jamo-Composing. The FILL character which has no graphic pattern associated with it is used as a NULL.
