I think it may depend what you think the function is for.
The conclusion I came to when I looked at this was that the intention of
the function is to convert *human-readable* characters. Historically,
fonts have naughtily used some 1-31 character positions for visible
glyphs, so the function needs to convert these from Mac Roman to windows
1252 character codes.
For this reason, I have a policy never to pass mactoiso or isotomac any
text containing delimiters, but only the actual human-readable content,
chunk by chunk. Then there are no issues.
