[PD] Symbol/character set

Im using GEM for some typographic visualisations and need an extended  
set of characters, at least the first 256 of the roman standard. It  
appears that the symbol object supports a bunch (like 8 bit). Im  
loading the content from an external text file and I need to use  
[l2s] together with [ascseq] to split the text into individual  
symbols. Obviously there's a catch with using [ascseq] as its a  
limited character set set. But it appears that [list] or [textfile]  
also has the same limitation (like 7 bit). Is this intended and is  
there a workaround?

Im using HC's PD-039.2 extended test 4
