how so ?

on my machines (win, debian) ASCII code is still wrapped between 0 and 
255, like always. so sending ASCII 8983 to [list tosymbol] outputs the 
same result as ASCII 23. (I'm on PD 0.51.2)

BTW, i use ASCII 164 as a (well, rather unsatisfying) replacement for 
ASCII 35 (diamond).

And yes, I agree it would be great if canvases would allow this 
character to be displayed correctly.
