0xA0 is a non-breaking space (chr(160), HTML  ), and is not part of the
US-ASCII character set.

(for some reason, it didn't survive the paste-into-mail-and-paste-from-mail-into-
editor trip, which is why your example worked well on my machine).

if you want to use that character in the file, set the encoding to"iso-8859-1" in-
stead of "us-ascii".
