7-bit ascii

Have not seen this anywhere yet, but I'm working with a legacy system that used 7-bit ascii for characters, and then always set the 8th bit on.
So capital "A" becomes octal 301.
However, HxD sees the high order bit as an extended character set of various symbols, making the text unreadable.

Would love to see a 7-bit ascii option for text.
