That's what I wanted to say, sorry for the confusion.  0x80 in
windows-1252 is an Euro, and U20AC is a legal Unicode character.

Ox80 in Latin-1 is a control character, it's the very same
control character in Unicode, and that's illegal in XML 1.0

All &#127; up to &#159; are illegal in XML 1.0   Bye, Frank
