help with encodings

Posts: n/a
never felt so stupid before

I have a file which is basically ascii except for few hexFA (250) bytes
(so if you look at it in notepad it looks readable and those 250 displayed
the reason they use them as escapes for some sort of compression
if I read this file in using StreamReader all those special guys disappear
fine i thought I am still smart so I read it in as byte array
of course after that I still need to convert it to string to use c# IndexOf
on that stupid
UTF8 encoding throws it out
Ascii (when converting to chars[] makes it ?

how do i get nice c# String which will still contain something out of band
for ascii chars
but still be a c# String (which we all love and know or at least that's what
I always thought)
