Extended ASCII characters

I am using CW8.2.2 with IDE 5.6.1, and I need to use 8-bit ASCII characters beyond 0x7F.  However, there are inconsistencies between the way the IDE and the compiler represent the characters.  For example, if a capital C with cedilla 'Ç' is entered in the IDE using the traditional value 0x80, it is displayed properly.  When this character is compiled as part of a string, it is given the value 0xC7, which is a valid value using a newer extended ASCII table, but not the same as 0x80.  Is there a way to get the IDE and compiler to use the same extended ASCII table?

 

Thanks,

 

Fred
