    Those code points (encoded properly) are valid. However, their
    appearance may indicate that an error occurred in processing, as
    the C1 controls would be rare in real Unicode text (and, with the
    exception of U+0085, are discouraged in XML). They most often
    arise by treating Windows-1252 as if it were ISO-Latin-1.

    In other words, not invalid, but suspicious.
