There's no such encoding.
"The use of the term is sometimes criticized, because it can be mistakenly
interpreted that the ASCII standard has been updated to include more than 128
characters or that the term unambiguously identifies a single encoding, both of
which are untrue" - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Extended_ascii
You have to tell me what you want me to do with those bytes. They can be:
1) rejected and replaced with U+FFFD (replacement character)
2) copied with the high bit discarded
3) copied as-is, which means doing exactly the same as fromLatin1
4) something else
What are you suggesting?
