    IMB's Character Data Representation Architecture (CDRA) defines
    two distinct flavours of each PC codepage, viz. "Display" and
    "Data". If the character data is properly tagged, the receiver
    knows whether 0D is meant as a charriage return, or as an eighth
    note. Basicaly, the same thing as with other encodings, only
    not so widely known.
