ACATS 3.1 User's Guide
5.1.3 Files With Non-Graphic Characters
Four ACATS test files contain ASCII non-graphic (control)
characters that may be lost or corrupted in the file transfer and decompression
process. The user must ensure that the proper characters are restored
There are also a number of ACATS test files provided
in UTF-8 format. These files have an .au file extension. The
user must take care that any processing tools do not corrupt UTF-8 files.
(This would be unusual: it is most likely if a tool does not recognize
UTF-8 formatted files and also modifies Latin-1 characters with codes
larger than 127.)
The following paragraphs describe the four tests
with ASCII non-graphic characters.
