    There is a set of characters defined in ISO/IEC 14882. It includes the
    ASCII alphanumerics, the symbols that have defined meanings in C/C++ and
    the underscore. They don't have to be defined according to any given
    encoding and as such \x6F may not be "o", though the use of encodings
    that are incompatible with ASCII for that range is relatively rare, but
    still a concern if complete cross-platform compliance is a potential issue.
