Table 5: Alphabet Block
alphabet_block ::=
  ``ASCII'' | ``EBSIDEC'' | ``BCD'' | ``BYTE''

The lowest component of the conversation is the alphabet. For any given conversation the choice of alphabet is fixed. The choices might include ASCII, EBSIDEC, BCD, or uninterpreted 8-bit bytes. One element in the alphabet is called a character.
