Notes 1. This code page contains the same graphic characters as EBCDIC Code Page 00259.
2. The graphic ND052000 at code point X'15' is in ASCII control space. For compatibility purposes this code point is considered to be in graphic space when the IBM Personal Computer printer character set 2 is active. To aid migration away from having a graphic in the control space the graphic is duplicated at code point X'E0'. All new applications should use code point X'E0'
3. Code point X'7F' is defined as an ASCII control position. However for compatibility reasons a space character (SP010000) has been defined to be the graphic which is printed when this code page is used with printers designed for use with the IBM Personal Computer. These printers support commands which allow the printing of graphics that occupy control positions.
