Re: [dev] ASCII Delimited Text

As an anecdote, I actually wanted to use US/RS delimited text at work
a while ago to consume XML downloaded from some service. The idea was
to use XSLT to convert the data to a sane format that I could easily
ingest. As it turns out, that was a no-can-do because XSL transforms
are defined in an XML dialect, and XML is not allowed to contain ASCII
control characters, not even on escaped form &#x1F; So you cannot
express this transformation to any of the XSLT engines I tested! I
ended up using a pair of Unicode control chars instead.
