RFC1345 has the distinct advantage of actually saying what ASCII is and how it
maps to Unicode in a file that is immediately accessible via a Web search for
the term "RFC 1345" or by following the link in the references. Searching for
"ANSI.X3-4.1986" gives you basically nothing useful (a Wikipedia page on ASCII,
at best).

Also, please don't file bugs on such trivial and unimportant matters.
