Description Aleksey Nogin 2001-04-22 12:38:09 EDT
It seems that xxd is not using locale to figure out which symbols are
printable and which should be represented by a ".". Because of that, it
substitutes all non-ASCII letters with a ".", which makes it harder to use
xxd for binary editing.

You're right, it had hardcoded ASCII values.
I've fixed this in 6.0-0.32.
