That may be the intention but there are many senders of asciiValue that assume 
ASCII encoding.

A better idea would be to introduce two methods 'value' to return raw value 
(i.e. lang and code) and asAscii to return value converted to ASCII. Retain 
asciiValue only for the case where value < 256 and raise an exception if this 
is violated. This should help catch all assumptions about char codes in the 
image (including in comments. see KeyboardEvent).

Would you like a changeset for this?
