You can't work that out from the context? Two emails ago I told you that
the problematic character in your data was 0xA3, a pound sign.
This is london.pm. A pound sign is £. That's not an ASCII character. #
is a hash. That *is* an ASCII character.
I'm not sure what your comment "both characters show up normally in
code" is trying to say.
Reading http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/ASCII might be a good start.
