Including or excluding C0 and C1 is a matter of taste. If you mean
"strictly containing characters in ISO 8859-1", then they're out.
If you mean "representable in typical Latin-1 text files", then at least
C0 is in, and C1 will do no great harm. (Provided your Unicode
characters don't originate from incorrect transcoding from CP 1252.)
The Latin Extended blocks are definitely out.
