    I refer to

    In ISO-8859-1,   code position 0x90 is mapped to U+0090.
    In Windows-1252, code position 0x90 is listed as "undefined".

    Why are they treated differently?
    International Standard ISO/IEC 8859-1 does *not* define
    code position 0x90. So it might also be listed as "undefined".

    Or, for purely practical reasons, 0x90 in Windows-1252 might
    also be mapped to U+0090.

    This different behaviour for undefined code positions may
    occasionally cause trouble - please see
    Thread "Fallback to UTF-8".
