Michael Beckerle commented on DAFFODIL-258:
-------------------------------------------


This notion of lowering a delimter to iso-8859-1 characters aka bytes is 
interesting.

Suppose a terminator is in utf-8. Consider:
{code}
val terminatorIn8859 = new String(terminator.getBytes("utf-8"), 
StandardCharsets.ISO_8859_1)
{code}
So the multi-byte characters in this utf-8 are "lowered" to multiple characters 
(aka bytes) in ISO-8859-1. These lowered characters can then be inter-mixed 
with raw bytes - which are not "raw" but valid character codes in iso-8859-1 
where every byte is valid.
