Yes, of course that's what you get because those are all ANSI
values, which is what Asc() and Chr() use.

Type Alt-0162 on the numeric keyboard and you'll get the ANSI

Type Alt-155 and you'll get the ASCII result.

In both cases, that's ¢.

This is *really* basic, folks, and has been the case since at least
Windows 3.x.

I don't know why Asc() returns ANSII values, but that is really what
it's doing.
