something like that - the C0 and C1 codes are different cases,
as noted in a comment at the bottom of the picture.  In xterm,
that's the sos_table, which has non-ignore codes for half of the C1 range.

Paul Williams gave advice/fixes a while back, and I've added runtime
checks in xterm to help avoid breaking symmetry where it _should_ be preserved.
