Chuckle. Yes, precisely correct. Try:

"all legal values greater than 127 and less than 256"

Yes, as I am well aware.  The point I was trying to make (and in striving
to so do missed a vital part of the sentence) was that the table starts
from &#160 and I said it was legal values greater than 127 - implication
being that 128 to 159 are not legal.

My apologies that in haste to make one point I neglected to make an
even more important one.
