As often as I've watched Gundam 0080, I don't recall ever seeing the
Kämpfer actually use a beam saber -- and, as noted, none of the printed
material shows this -- but I'll take your word for it. My eyesight must be
a lot worse than I thought or possibly something else in the scene
distracted my attention and the beam saber simply didn't register.

Actually, I *do* have an ASCII chart next to one of my computers. The
TopSpot Computer Programmer's Quick Reference is a 2030" (5075cm) wall
poster with a complete ASCII chart, keyboard scan codes over a line drawing
of a keyboard, decimal color codes, base number conversions, decimal values
for the extended ASCII box drawing characters laid out as boxes and musical
note frequencies for the 88 notes of a piano keyboard, rounding up to the
nearest Hz. All of it's obsolete now -- we use ANSI not ASCII, the chart
only covers the old 84-key IBM keyboard, etc. But it was a handy reference
when I was coding MS-DOS apps in macro assembler and BASIC back in 1987….
