Thanks for working on this, despite my late reply, I do appreciate the 
work that you are doing.

In reading this email, I am reminded that I owe you responses on several 
issues ...

I've run out of time today and there are some open Rowan issues that I 
need to start addressing ... So I'll come back to addressing the issues 
that I owe you tomorrow morning ...

But while #x100 (256) is a valid Char (in the #x20-#xD7FF range), #x01 and #x00 aren't, so representing it with '$' followed by #x01 and #x00 is not well-formed.

> To encode output, you do 'myObjectGraph sixxString encodeAsUTF8' (or 'XMLUTF8StreamConverter encode: myObjectGraph sixxString'). Or better, give a #sixxOn:* message a write stream (or GsFile) wrapped with an encoder so it will encode its output as UTF-8. I gave Mariano some examples.
