RE: Another Clause 49 comment

Yes, an invalid O code should also be treated as an error frame. Pat

Hi Pat,

Just thought of another one.

You've listed as one of the conditions for invalidating a frame being
"any control character contains a value not in Table 49-1". Should this
also include any O Code not in Table 49-1 - i.e.: if a TYPE field
indicates an ordered set, and if the corresponding O-code isn't one of
the 3 values in Table 49-1, I would consider this an invalid frame as an
unsupported ordered set seems to be appearing. What do you think?
