Picking nits, I presume you mean:

0x41, 0x0D, 0x0A, 0x1A (A\r\n^Z)

(Starting with Unicode 3.0, U+410D U+0A1A actually is a valid sequence of
two assigned Unicode characters: U+410D is a *very* rare alternate for
the "common" form U+8721, referring to a year-end festival of the Zhou
dynasty. U+0A1A is the GURMUKHI LETTER CA. Not exactly a likely combination
in real text, I warrant.)
