Indeed. The context I've seen it was early version of MIT Kerberos 
encoding the password to iso-8859-1 versus Windows 2000 which encodes to 
UTF8. In that situation, any character not in the basic US-ASCII range 
32-126 inclusive was unsafe to use cross-platform.

We still advise people to avoid non-ASCII characters in passwords :o(

The IT industry really is a bad joke, told by a malicious higher power...
