The definition given for STRING-CHAR-CODE-LIMIT is too simplistic.
In VAX LISP for example, a character can't have bits or font if it
is to be stored into a simple-string.
As Scott says, STRING-CHAR-P exists exactly so that you can find out
if a character is a string-char. You might want to build a table with
an entry for every string-char; then STRING-CHAR-CODE-LIMIT might
be useful. However, you can figure out how big to make the table
I guess it would be wrong to assume that STRING-CHAR-CODE-LIMIT =
CHAR-CODE-LIMIT. But I bet that equality holds for every implementation.
