Okay, I set it myself. :-\

Now I found that there is already a translation table, which just has to
be activated by:

GraphStringTransTable := @AnsiToASCIITransTable;

You really should put that into the manual!

BTW. the naming is not correct, because /both/ charsets are based on
ASCII and it's not translated to /pure/ ASCII.

That's still a problem.

Another fault in the docs: the functions "InstallUserDriver" and 
"RegisterBGIDriver" are explained as if they were implemented.
