[Nut-upsdev] Encoding when communicating with a NUT server?

Hi everyone,

I apologize in advance if this is an obvious question - I haven't dealt 
with string encoding much when programming before.

I'm working on a library in .Net to communicate with NUT servers as a 
client. I'm at the point of setting up a socket to send and receive 
information from a NUT server, but I've realized that I don't actually 
know what encoding I should use when sending the raw bytes. ASCII? 
UTF-8? Something else? I want to assume that it's UTF-8, but just in 
case there's some sort of edge-case, I'd like to know for sure.

Thank you,
