9-bit SCI Trouble

I am having difficulty getting the 9th bit of the serial communication to be high during transmission. After setting the SCC3 register bit T8 to TRUE I then do a "AS1_SendChar(*Ptr)" in which I expect the 9th bit to be high. However, after looking at the transmission on a scope this is clearly not happening.

I realize I must be missing something so what must be done to ensure manipulation of this 9th bit.

Sincere thanks,
