In Appendix B.1, it says:

         CHAR           =  %x01-7F
                                ; any 7-bit US-ASCII character,
                                ;  excluding NUL

It should say:

[see below]

Notes:

NUL is not defined.

Suggestions:
(1)
Re-write the document in a character-encoding-independent manner.
(2)
Add definition of NUL (or NULL) as terminating null character - watch =
out for character encoding!
(3)
Add definition of NOTNULL as any character but terminating null =
character - watch out for character encoding!

from pending
--VERIFIER NOTES--
NUL is defined in US-ASCII.
