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 the IBM Personal Computer
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 Simplified Chinese DBCS-PC. Code points X'81' through X'FC' specify the first byte of the double-byte code.
4. Sept 12 2007 - Changed registration category to "Restricted" as this CP is targetted to be tagged as "Obsolete". However there are still 'active' CCSIDs that reference this CP.
