OK, that behaves as you say it should (and basically as I expect) by
displaying \?A3 for the invalid pound signs.

It also highlights a problem with the XFCE Terminal which can't change
character set under user control.  The gnome-terminal can change at
user request and allowed me to test this easily by creating a file
with iso-8859-1 pound signs in it and then switching back to utf-8 to
see how it behaved.  So it's gnome-terminal for me from now on!  :-)

I'll keep running the 9.6j2 code and report any other glitches I come

thanks. There may be other areas that I've overlooked, but am not expecting that they'll be difficult to fix (the basic design won't need changes).
