In your string, when I view this page in IE6 on W2K, the final character appears to me as a "tm" symbol, and I see in the source that it you entered it as #145.
By the way when you say "ASCII", strictly speaking I think that only includes the original, 7-bit US-ASCII character set (only 128 characters).
If you want 8-bit character sets, you have to decide which one you want; perhaps you are thinking of "iso-8859-1"? The man page for "iso-8859-1" in Linux does say that it "may already be seen as the de-facto standard ASCII replacement", also that the ISO 8859-1 characters are the first 256 characters of ISO 10646 (Unicode).
